    Enough Said

    When you fall in love with a screen couple, you feel like you could watch them forever. You never want the movie to end. You just want to sit there and hear the two of them duet with each other. Like Emmylou Harris and Gram Parsons. 

    Maybe it’s because I’m getting long in the tooth but these guys are easily one of my favourite couples in cinema – certainly from the last thirty years. Only Forster and Grier in Jackie Brown capture my affection more. Gandolfini and Louis-Dreyfus are incredible. I wish they did a hundred films together. They could have been our Hepburn and Tracy.

    Does your dog like David Foster Wallace? I’m almost certain mine does. He’s always wearing a bandanna. And you should see the footnotes in his essays. They’re endless.

    (The titles he uses are a good indication too. His latest one’s called A Supposedly Nice Butt I’ll Never Sniff Again)

    My own plan is to challenge Death to a little Super Mario Kart action. Immortality should await me as I'm almost unstoppable on Rainbow Road.

    I used to be really racist. But then I saw this movie. Now I'm not racist anymore.

    If you don't wanna be racist, you should watch it too.

    Just make sure you see this particular movie and not the other Crash by David Cronenberg. That one just makes you really kinky.
