A supercut of 54 movies in which characters ‘break the fourth wall’ and acknowledge their fictionality, eitther obliquely or by addressing the audience directly.
Compiled by Leigh Singer, who apologises in advance for the omission of Sam Elliot’s ‘The Stranger’ in The Big Lebowski.
A YouTuber going by the name ‘James Bond’ has stitched together pieces from all 22 films to create one meta film showing how formulaic the stories are but also how they have influenced the super-spy genre.
A fiesty supercut by Jonathan Keogh who, while admitting that not all of these films come from the top 250 on IMDb, sez (in admirably geeky style):
