Re-watch: even when I knew exactly what was coming, I still absolutely didn't. Took me down all over again. Its interplay with mainstream genre comedy is so complex, but also laudably empathetic. Almost every scene contains a red herring for genre cliché spotters. Seemed apposite to see this on the day of the #TrumpTapes meltdown as, among its vast bounty of pleasures, it offers a very trenchant and subtle takedown swinging dick corporate machismo. Have been terrified that a second viewing wouldn't equal the pure shot of euphoria I got from the first screening, but it absolutely did. Floating, again.
No central character.
No defined purpose for side characters.
No three acts.
No internal references.
No political polemical voice.
One of the best films ever made.
