Is there a shittier feeling in the world than feeling cut off from all humanity?
Not a scientific list, and probably missing a bunch, but I have a hard to pin down idea in my mind. Not improv, director or specifically actor driven. Something about tone, structure, dialogue and characterization that just feels written. Also, I think movie adaptations of plays don’t count.
1. In Bruges
2. Kicking and Screaming
4. Breaking Away
5. Annie Hall (Sort of made in the editing bay, but whatever)
I’d throw Network on that list, but then again, some people think that movie is over written.
Also, I never liked Kicking and Screaming… unless you mean the Will Ferrell version, in which case, I didn’t see it. IT MIGHT BE BRILLIANT FOR ALL I KNOW!
“Here’s the one I told [Gallagher]: ‘In California, it’s legal to start a fire in the woods, but not on the beach. But on the beach, you’re 10 feet away from sand and water—that’s the shit that puts it out!’ Gallagher asked me if he could use that joke, and I was like, of course you can use it; you’re Gallagher!”
Gallagher’s relationship with Thompson turned sour in the early ’90s.” —Las Vegas Weekly : - Bringing ’em back together (via mtobey)
