Just came across this, thought it was pretty cool...

\"I wanted to make a film for kids, something that would present them with a kind of elementary morality. Because nowadays nobody bothers to tell those kids, \'Hey, this is right and this is wrong\'.\"

When Barry is in his office, talking on the phone to his sister I believe, and Luis is with the clients showcasing the new break-proof plungers, and the whole time I was wondering if that thing would break as the last one!

That is neither quirky..nor a delight
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

calm down, calm down, yes i know it's an old thread.
with no Search feature, sorry if i'm repeating something.

Watching Goodfellas on TV last night, has anyone noticed that Barry cries exactly like Jimmy after Tommy is whacked? Down to the sound and even how he buries his face in his hands and bends over.

They also say "So that's that," or some variant when it cuts back to the overhead shot of Tommy dead on the floor with blood pouring out, which, as we know, is a repeated phrase in PDL.

I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

this is a fucking brilliant thread.

bigideas, oh child, you don't even realise.. you've done very well in resurrecting this thread, as per the current news ticker imploring everyone to do exactly that. but you've also done very badly by apparently ignoring the previous news and corresponding postings that the search function has been working for months now. it appears you have done both things, failed and triumphed, unknowingly.. you are a true life Chauncey Gardiner.

anyway, i can't wait to watch PDL again and check all these observations, including yours. we should have a thread dedicated to Quirky Delights in CMBB if there isn't one already..

Hahahaha!

It is true this is a very good thread.

A little too late. Our friend over me under you passed away on Christmas day. I was friends with him on facebook and what.cd.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Is that true?  I've wondered from time to time if someone from the board died if anyone would know it.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

well, had anyone noticed the Goodfellas/Jimmy laugh/Barry thing?

i guess the difference between me and some people here is that it's always about movies, i don't care about board politics.

the pure reason for this post, any post, is to make conversation for/about a film and stanley kubrick's favorite nightie.
