    Needed more Real Don Steele but otherwise, damn, this is pretty great.

    Too much sexism and racism and guys-being-dudes-ism for my taste. I get that these are men in an awful, violent, scary environment and they've developed these extreme coping mechanisms but it isn't something I need to watch play out as they super harass every woman in their vicinity.

    Baby Bud Cort gets the one line that really made me laugh, when they're doing the fake-suicide ceremony thing and he leans over to the guy in the coffin and mumbles in disappointment, "You're throwing your whole education away"

    I don't know if anything will ever move me the way this film does. It makes me yearn for something but I don't know what, and it's always had that effect. Love is not a strong enough word for how I feel about it.

    I also really really miss Adrienne Shelly.
