Watch This: Neil LaBute Asks People 'How Far Would You Go?'

This may just be the oddest video you'll see on this site. Originally found by SlashFilm, the following video is actually a promotion for the new PlayStation 3 video game Heavy Rain. In this, Neil LaBute, director of films like In the Company of Men, The Shape of Things, and Lakeview Terrace, asks people "how far would you go to save someone you love?" He ends up talking with a few other filmmakers like Peter Bogdanovich, Stephen Frears, Nicolas Roeg and Chris Weitz, as well as actors like Samuel Jackson and Nicholas Hoult. It's pretty interesting to see, even though it's not really about movies, but that doesn't matter. So check it out.
How far will you go to save someone you love? In Heavy Rain each player discovers their own answer to this question as they experience a gripping psychological thriller filled with innumerable twists and turns, where choices and actions can and do result in dramatic consequences. Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as the Origami Killer - named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes. The concept is that this is a documentary where famous "witnesses" answer that question. I'm not sure if it works, but it was pretty cool to see. Thoughts?
Games that have the emotional experience of a film but allow you to control the journey. Its the next step. Can't be worse than films based on games.

that game is amazing but i love that they asked actors writers and directors that was a neat idea and its a pretty good question that we all should ask our selves at on point
