Video: Michel Gondry's "Taxi Driver" remake

Looks like filmmaker Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, etc..) has taken a page out of his movie Be Kind Rewind and make a sweded movie of his own, in this case Taxi Driver.  Don't feel bad,.. I initially had to look up what "sweding" a film was too.  It is essentially creatively recreating big budget movies w/ a camcorder and a lot of free time.  In typical Gondry fashion he brings child like innovation (like colored pencils for bullets & neon paint for blood) to otherwise mature and in this case gruesome subject matter.

Hopefully this is the start of many sweded film remakes to come for Gondry.
