my warren beatty fucks? double feature:
BONNIE & CLYDE: warren beatty can't fuck
SHAMPOO: warren beatty fucks (everyone, all the time, god help him)
picture this: it is 2006 and you are 13 years old, having a wild night at a britney spears concert. she finishes a song, then announces that andrew ridgeley (you know, the member of wham! that's not george michael) is going to sing a song he wrote. everyone in the audience sits down and goes completely silent. andrew ridgeley proceeds to sing a VERY mediocre piano ballad about how he's useless and living in the past. you, and the entire audience of teens around you, give him a standing ovation.
that's basically what happens in this movie and i am shocked
i love how greta garbo always has the energy of frowning while nonchalantly gesturing with a cigarette in her hand even when there are no cigarettes in the scene at all. also spent this whole film thinking about how much i wished john gilbert was in this and about jack nicholson playing eugene o'neill in REDS (both things made me sad).
