"Who the @#$% has the goddamned gall to call this house on a Tuesday night?!"
♫ HMM-MM-MM... HMM-MM-MM... ♫
Yeah...... don't watch this film with your mom.
Might as well watch Antichrist, it'll make for the same level of discomfort.
She walked out after about 45 minutes.
I however STILL love this movie. This is the 3rd time watching it, now.
I think I'm going to move it down a slot or 2 on my Top 10 of the year, but it's still on the list.
You see the holes that people bring up. But the great scenes are still great. Scorsese just killin' it in this movie. It's like the good ol' Pre-Shutter Island days I tell ya!
I love how Terrence Winter's style is all over this movie. You can tell it's from the same guy who wrote for The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire.
He writes lowlife idiots so well.
"I can sell anything. Hell, I can sell ludes to a convent of nuns, get 'em so horny, they'll be @#$%ing each other."
"Let 'em watch... let 'em watch."
I seriously hope Winter keeps writing Scorsese movies.
So, I still think the movie is excellent... just be sure to let people know what the movie is about if they're at all squeamish.
