    “So, you listen to me. Listen to me!
    Television is not the truth. Television's a goddamn amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We're in the boredom-killing business.”

    Really really cool stuff here. You’ve the power of canonical-cross-cutting , the time machine rig stand-in for a camera, the car chase like an action sequence directed by Val Kilmer and Adam Goldberg and shot by Denzel Washington. Also clean af on the direction and the script AND score, Tony Scott gives you so much with so little. It’s his movie-movie!

Fran said she had dreamt of playing Lady Macbeth ever since doing her sleepwalking monologue in class when she was 16. Boy, did she make good on that one.

    Finally, the multiverse movie to end all multiverse movies. Nobody make any more after this, you’re just gonna look stupid.

    This is a movie for me because it is never not trying to be funny even when everything is shit; that’s my kind of screenplay.
