We don’t want to give too much away about this tremendous discovery of Ben Affleck’s first stab at directing a film, so let’s just go with the title of the short from 1993: I Killed My Lesbian Wife, Hung Her on a Meat Hook, and Now I Have a Three-Picture Deal at Disney.

Questions? Anyone? Anyone? No? Well, at least now you can see what Gus Van Sant had to put up with when adapting Good Will Hunting from a movie about a super genius trying to thwart evil F.B.I. agents with the help of his best friend and his therapist. (Not a joke. Look it up.)
