I haven’t made a Fake Criterion for a darn long time now, so I thought I’d return with a bang. Here’s my (first) FC for the brilliant American Psycho.
"They abide, and they endure."
The ultimate wet-dream…

"And then I woke up…"
A Fake Criterion I made for Tomas Alfredson’s harrowing yet outstanding film Let the Right One In.
"Is there something in the way?"
Jackie Brown (1997) by Quentin Tarantino
So that’s what Samuel L. Jackson would look like with long hair.

"It’s your daddy’s fault you were the way you were, not mine."
My Fake Criterion for Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece Psycho
"We all go a little mad sometimes. Haven’t you?"

"Is there someone inside you?"
Fake criterion for michelangelo antonioni’s BLOW-UP (1966)

"We met at the movies once."
"I’m sure it was magical."

If I’m going to make a fake movie, it’s going to be a fake hit.
"If we wanted applause, we would have joined the circus."
