Everybody is jabbering about whether there will be an ounce of goodness in Your Name Here, the upcoming movie about the life of dystopian scifi author Philip K. Dick (whose novels inspired movies Bladerunner, Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly). It sounds promising — Bill Pullman plays the meth-snorting writer who becomes obsessed with a robot version of Victoria Principal after watching her in Earthquake. What few people realize, however, is that Your Name Here might have been inspired by a little-known industrial film satire of the same name, released in 1960. The original Your Name Here is a spot-on parody of movies that hype the scientific-industrial society as a utopia, and use cheesy marketing to convince Americans to buy more stuff. The best part? "Your Name Here" was actually made by a company that specialized in the very industrial films it makes fun of. Watch the movie above, via the Prelinger Archive. It's pure Dickish fun, a surreal blend of advertising and science propaganda. I love how "progress" and "the future" are represented by endless vistas of disgusting industrial buildings belching smoke. The original Your Name Here is probably a more truthful representation of Dick's sense of humor than the new movie will be.
