Mel Bochner's Minimal Art - The Movie, 1966
Before I discuss updating, I think it's interesting to note Nancy "Smithson" as Bridget Bardot and any of the other artist's wives whose first names are only denoted with their first initial (and of course wondering if their last names are not those of their husbands). I also like the cross offs for Virginia Dwan and Robert Smithson.
James Dean & Elizabeth Taylor in Giant (filmed in Marfa, Texas)
Today's remake would feature full names of entire cast and Willem Dafoe (he'd be a good Micheal Heizer), Philip Seymour Hoffman, Hope Davis, and Michelle Williams. Who else?
