Since I am skiing and driving home all day………Slope Cinema proudly presents……….
This is a comment cleaner, but not a meaningless one. The Straight Story is one of the few David Lynch creations I have never seen. I’ve been looking at clips and enjoying them quite a bit. Here’s one particular clip I found touching………..
Maybe because it’s I am a Knight, but I don’t think any single book, play, or other work of art has had more influence on my worldview than Camelot. That may seem ridiculous, but it’s true. Below is the production HBO did of it back in 1982 with the marvelous Richard Harris, and I’ve watched it countless times. Enjoy:
I was privileged this weekend to see a preview showing of a new movie coming out next month called Gifted which I thoroughly enjoyed. (We also got to meet the producer as well as the young star of the movie, who is the most adorable kid imaginable). I heartily recommend it!
I suspect almost everyone here has seen Animal House at least two (if not a dozen) times. This is a fun documentary about its creation. Why would you want to watch it? As Stork would say: “Well what the hell we s’posed to do, ya mo-ron?”
It’s shaping up to be another terrific day for me. This scene is a favorite of mine, which I’m sure is a common sentiment among Slopers. Perhaps one of my favorite dialog exchanges of all time:
“How you feeling this morning?”
“Like a mean mother-fucker, sir!”
