"Anthology?[edit]

In the description at the top, Grindhouse is described as an "anthology film". Huh? I was under the impression that an anthology was a collection of work from a single artist that wasn't created for the anthology itself, but instead created over a certain period of time in the artist's career, and then later assembled into said anthology (such as Daft Punk's Musique, Vol. 1 (1993-2005). However, Grindhouse is a double feature, created by two different artists, and created with the intent of making a double feature. Therefore, I don't think this should be labeled as an anthology. Wow; I wrote a lot! --97.127.36.197 05:03, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

An anthology may include multiple authors, and need not consist of previously published works. It is common for book publishers to solicit original works on a theme from multiple authors for an anthology, especially for genre fiction and for essays. Anthology films are less common, but not unprecedented. See w:Category:Anthology films for examples. ~ Ningauble 13:52, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
