    And you know me, I'm down with anything except gratuitous product placement. And nothing with monkeys. I appreciate the truly world class shit.

    how the hell do I find that, I'm in. And you've been here longer than 2010, that fucking avatar. I've been indelibly interested in what would be your second choice for 11 years.

    Caligula is old hat, I watch it just for Peter O'Toole's teeth. ...and the blowjob. Good call though. That was really close to my first porn, and decent movie. The behind the scenes shit is worth a peak, you get to see the Italian guy with the pepperoni trying to run naked like a pizza bike messenger late to the orgy. I called him the flim flam man once and a girl laughed at that. Axl Rose got it right Bob Guccioni Jr. should have been shot out of someone else's loins, the old man didn'tfuck around. That was a million dollar X-Rated movie. I got at least $37.50 in that. If anybody hasn't seen that, you ain't no hound dog. ...I used to have nightmares of my bladder getting punctured after a night on the back sidewalks. At one point I had that movie on 2 VHS tapes. ....I watched it on laser disk, and then watched Death Wish, and then I watched Caligula again. ...Goddamn, that's what I was looking for though, could you imagine if I hadn't seen that, I'd be buying your a steak with my left hand tomorrow.

    I watch a lot of junk and appreciate really horrible movies, bottom drawer b-movies, and horror shit and Lars Von Trier existential lead-filled depressing dark shit, and I've put a lifetime into the classics and watch noirs and silent shit in the fall, I used to have a sizeable Criterion Collection, and those fuckers are expensive, I was in the hospital for a bit and they wiped me out. I have the Seventh Seal, 8 and Half and some Kurosawas, a few other Bergman movies, Goddamn it, I lost a lot. Knife in the Water, I love foreign shit, but have been dealing with eye troubles so subtitles, I need to give a shit about. Man that was a hard shitty sentence to put down.

    My heart's in the classics, I have a pretty okay foundation with the good shit, and I'm not looking to get walloped, but you hope, imagine walking into the Wild Bunch or Last Tango in Paris dry off the street. I got to see Clockwork Orange behind a curtain when I was 13, on folding chairs with one passed out drunk and some guy who didn't move. That changed my life. But then stumbled on Beautiful Girls, shit slips by, that's one of my favorite movies. I can't remember the last time I was excited about a movie. And I don't like that.

    True Detective was the last truly great shit I've seen that had resonance, a gem I'm not sure many people gave a shot was Olive Kitteridge, I'd watch Frances McDormand pick eggshell out of a carpet.

    A lot of pretty good movies, but there's a million movies out there I haven't seen, and I'm getting old. American Pie isn't a meal. Hell or High Water was kind of one of those flicks, I swear to God, I saw Ben Foster in my kid's tv shit and said, that fucking kid is gonna be the shit. To see Brando flicker in a little kid, I called that shit and read a book and said, yeah, that kid, can't wait to see what this guy's gonna do. If I had money, I can picture his MacBeth but his Hamlet, I'd wait for that.

    I digress, I guess I forgot there was somebody on the other end. I dunno.

    In Switzerland they had brotherly love. I think Orson Welles is ...nevermind. He's one notch ahead of Kubrick and John Ford and then there's the rest. The man himself. I've fought my whole life to find the one that usurps Citizen Kane, ...they fuck around with Casablanca and Godfather 2, ....but I just don't see it, you only have to peek for 2 minutes anywhere in that movie and you can go fuck yourself with a different, non-sentimental conclusion. It's not my favorite movie, but there's no jockeying like handsome man of the year. If you truly like the art behind what's being done to you with a movie, it's seriously a joke to play with it, the shit in that movie was the template for shit they haven't even played with. Alfred Hitchcock is the maestro, but goddamn, people saying Vertigo, which is masterpiece, but it's not perfect, Vertigo is better in film critique than Citizen Kane? Son of a bitch. The Good The Bad And the Ugly technically and cinematically, you can't tell me you're gonna watch Vertigo or Casablanca back to back with your eyes on the screen. Who's watched Chimes at Midnight, I saved to buy that VhS, What really stinks is I don't see kids or older kids or people giving a shit about Shakespeare or theater, outside of Hamilton or the ...what was the question
