I rest on Traffic first and foremost, Fear and Loathing second.  Or maybe the other way around?
I'm somebody now, Harry. Everybody likes me. Soon, millions of people will see me and they'll all like me. I'll tell them about you, and your father, how good he was to us. Remember? It's a reason to get up in the morning. It's a reason to lose weight, to fit in the red dress. It's a reason to smile. It makes tomorrow all right. What have I got Harry, hm? Why should I even make the bed, or wash the dishes? I do them, but why should I? I'm alone. Your father's gone, you're gone. I got no one to care for. What have I got, Harry? I'm lonely. I'm old.

I believe you, but... you have now GOT to see Far from Heaven. You paraphrase a very amusing line from it. Not that it wouldn't be worth seeing anyways.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

I actually did end up seeing it, I couldn't help but catch it...it was in theatres here for at least 5 months. And frankly, I didn't like it very much. It just didn't really grab me. Way too referential to films of the 50's that I'm not very familiar with at this point in my life.

yes i loved him in Snatch...

i was really mad that they totally ignored Snatch when they interviewed him on Inside the Actor's studio... granted he had a small part on it, but they didnt even MENTION the movie.

*raises hand right up*

But there were two other films that sucked big-timer this past year.
“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.” - Andy Warhol
