Reappropriated Film Festival

"Charlie Rose" by Samuel Beckett was recently posted in a separate thread, but it's hardly the first example of filmmaking based on reusing footage out of context. Among the more recent examples of the genre are Jandrew Edits (containing footage from Star Trek: the Next Generation) and the Japanese Okusan Domon Desu (and the fourth episode. It may help to have seen the original G Gundam too). It's also been the basis for a couple of feature-length, real-theater-type movies, including Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid and Kung Pow! Enter the Fist (Wiki links), though in those cases, to be fair, they had new footage filmed to tie the bits together. Naturally, the technique tends to lend itself to comedy.
