    brad driving through hollywood and up into the valley to his pad early on is my favorite scene lol. quentin fuckin loves cars and that is a good trait for a director to have. i'm gonna rewatch death proof after this, there's a lot of driving in that one from what i remember. he also loves saying that sergio corbucci is the 2nd best director of spaghetti westerns, which he got al pacino to say. some of the director-surrogate wish-fulfillment…

    "how's this, i'll ask you a question... a jazz question"

    Mann is simultaneously cool as hell and a lame nerd, big reason why he's one of the best.

    "you cry, and then you laugh, stupid!"

    one of Hong's most depressing and self-critical films isn't without his humor. staying one step ahead of himself, he criticizes the autobiographical nature of his films, which of course would become even closer to his own life in recent collaborations with Kim Min-hee. the "reality" presented after the film-within-the-film ends seems more stale and less melodramatic, until the sun goes down and Dong-soo starts to drink. he arrives at the conclusion that he…

  • Sully

    ★★★★½

    in his last 2 films, Clint Eastwood has shown posters for his previous work, (Gran Torino in Times Square here, Letters from Iwo Jima in Spencer's childhood room in 15:17) and I really hope that trend continues.
