Steven Soderberg's latest 'Schizopolis' uses what I *think* is super-8 in
some of the segments.  Namely, during the intermittent scenes where the bug
exterminator drives around exterminating bugs and speaking nonsensically.
The exterminator is named Elmo, which is a fairly common brand of super-8
camera (I have one myself, in fact), and about halfway throught the movie
Elmo is approached by another film crew who lures him away from the
exterminator role he's currently playing and promises to create a larger,
more significant role (with the accompanying larger format) for our Elmo.
