    In the Heat of the Night


    Watched as part of my May 2020 Challenge.

    Any film that starts with the letters I or J

    "I don't think I have to do that, you see? No, because you're so damn smart. You're smarter than any white man. You're just gonna stay here and show us all. You've got such a big head that you could never live with yourself unless you could put us all to shame. You wanna know something, Virgil? I don't think that you could let an opportunity like that pass by."

    A film featuring the media prominently

    "Your man prints anything! He'll use any spice to pepper up his daily garbage! You tell him I said so! Tell him that, like yourself, he's got the scruples of a guinea pig and the morals of a gangster."

    Rarely do I feel the need, or urge, to rewatch a film so quickly. Ironically, one of the 2 times I remember doing it was with Lynch's Mulholland Drive (the other one was with Memento). I had to see this again and it's amazing how much a rewatch helps with trying to understand things (emphasis on "Trying"!). Such a mesmerizing film.

    A film with a face on the poster
    A Best Picture nominee

    "The mistakes I've made, I've made again. They can no longer be ignored. There are things nagging at me. Things that now must be done. Things I simply cannot do without you. To keep my sour heart from choking. To break a curse. A house that doesn't change is a dead house."

    A lot of what happens in Phantom Thread
