I'm such a whore for The Private Life Of Sherlock Holmes.

The fact that you like Transmission almost makes up for the fact that you don't like Sunset Boulevard.

Your stature in my eyes takes a small hit over all. I know a great club we should hit next time I'm in Hollywood. You can dance dance dance all night long.

And where the fuck has Donald Wiskerando been? His love for Ian Curtis does explain every picture I've ever seen of him though.

So are you saying that great filmmakers have an innate sense of rhythm and pacing? That's pretty intriguing.

Name a great director, name a great sequence. It's all about pacing. Whether that translates to a physical side, dunno.

Perhaps that's why Juno succeeds whilst Lars fails. Lars is more fantasy in the sense that the entire town and everyone around is waiting for Lars to figure it out. This might have been more appealing if Lars was dealing with a real emotional pain other than not being able to accept becoming an uncle. It becomes about indulgence. Dealing with grief through fantasy is acceptable. If you have to transition your real pain through a surrogate, everyone understands that. If you have to transfer fake or unrealistic pain through fantasy, you're just a loony. And not in the "we're all nuts" sense, you need, you need to have your bullshit beaten out of you (not in the literal curb-job sense, but in a curbing sense).

I really like that take. I've defended Lars before, but I definitely need to see it on DVD again before I really, really make up my mind about it. I have a feeling it won't hold up.

If you started to charge, I'd just find a torrent for it anyway.

I've been championing Used Cars (and the quite awesome commentary) for years. The difference? People might listen to you. Why, I have no idea. I'm prettier and I bet I smell fantastically better (not a knock on you, Dre; I just smell really fucking good).

Anyway, just wanted to drop a "preach it!" on you for spreading the word on Zemeckis' best movie, Gerrit Graham's second best movie ("That price...is too high."Wink, and Kurt Russell's fourth or fifth best movie.

I haven't seen "Used Cars" since the 80's, but as I recall, I liked it. Was it better than Darren McGavin's epic "Zero to Sixty"? I don't know, but that is beside the point. I came into this thread to say that I doubt that Phil smells that good. That is all.

Bah. Body spray and cologne are for college kids and date rapists.

Enough of this: "Look out! It's High Prices!"

Just added "Used Cars" to my queue. I didn't realize there was so much love for it. Added Peckinpah's "Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia" to the queue on Swicegood's recommendation as well.

Kurt Fuller, a "Hey it's that guy" for only the most scholarly "Hey it's that guy." I knew I recognized him from West Wing, but not in the role I thought he was. I thought he was the guy who gets fired from Bartlet's campaign in early season two, but that's Andy Umberger. Anyway, good to have a name for the face.

I bought this the very day after the night with you, Edgar, Dev and Drew. Still not cracked it open yet, but there you go. That says more about my ability to prioritise the toppling 'Tower Of To Watch' than the film and/or your recommendation of such.

Never use the words "Replace William Atherton" around me. Even though that's what he did. Just don't remind me of it.

Prince destroys MJ, no question.

And "Pussy Control" is a great song.

Bouncers and changed locations for dancing and Murakami (oh. My...)

One of my favorite anecdotes re: the Murakami show, is apparently one of the billboards advertising the show got tagged by a few guys, and Murakami liked the look so much, the graff over his work, that he had them ship the billboard back to his house.

Yeah, that was a great story. I wonder what REVOK and AUGER(the taggers involved) think about the whole thing.

The lack of unity in our culture has bothered me for some time. It's doesn't even seem to be a lack of unity so much as that our culture moves so fast with the overexposure thing that nothing stays around long enough to make an impact. I can't imagine any big song from the last five years being replayed in thirty.
