LiT has a scene with 4:20 shown on a clock ahehe.
I recommend Dr Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.
hehe – i seen you changed to a new scene.
what’s so funny about 4:20?
dave; in case you are serious this might help:
thanks. I don’t know much about drugs. I heard they are for girls.
You’ll notice that quite a few of the clocks in Pulp Fiction are set at 4:20 too. I think.
And as for Strangelove? WOOOOO! I’m so glad someone else I know who is under 40 has seen and appreciated this masterpiece! The ending is possibly my second most favourite ever.
You didn’t like it Az?
thats peter sellers, isn’t it?
Yeah. Plays three parts. Very well.
You neglect to mention that the best thing Stanley Kubrick ever did was 2001: Space Odyssey. And that is only good because it paved the way for the bit in Zoolander where Derek and Hansel are trying to turn on Ballstein’s computer to get information about Mugatu. Now that is classic cinema.
Second best thing is Dr Strangelove, and that only because it paved the way for the Simpsons parody with Homer riding the bomb. Now that is culture.
ha. I’d seen cowboys irding bombs lots of times, didn’t realise it was always a ‘reference’. As soon as he went down to check the doors I knew it was coming though.
Thankyou! I’ve had the subtitle stuck in my head for weeks and couldn’t recall the “Dr Strangelove”. Have had it inflicted upon me by my father, but am almost at the stage where I would like to watch and consider it on my own terms.
matt – no. Perhaps I need to watch it again and appreciate it as a cult piece. But I thought it was dumb.
Though I did appreciate Peter Sellers.
I didn’t have any ideas of ‘cult piece’ in my head. I liked it for making me think about the military mindset, precariousness of global situation (at the time at least), obscene H-bombs (the H is for hubris).
i really have to see that movie. matt likes it and aaron dislikes it — there are few higher recommendations
joking only, aaron
i take credit for encouraging these young men to view films a little outside the box
and another peter sellers film Being there
as for stanly krubeck i like Lolita (also starring Sellers)
and a film i want to see The Mouse that Roared
Well it looks like there my be a peter sellers tribute evening going down shortly in the Holtslag Sunnyside mansion
[edited ever-so-slightly by Matthew – the poor holtslags don’t have a working ‘v’ key anymore]
One should not look past “The Party” as Peter Seller’s premier performance.
Ahhh. The hegemony of alternative culture – the illusion that one is thinking for oneself when one is really a slave to the dictates of a smaller group of the self-pronounced elite. Which one of us does not fall into that particular trap at one time or another?
I prove how alternative I am by liking mainstream stuff as well like SUGABABES and AVRIL!!!
Which one of us can truly say that they have not sung along with the Sugababes and Avril at one time or another? (and maybe even tapped their feet to the infectious beat)
woe are we. For we are ‘v’less. I feel less of a man without a ‘v’ at home.
it’s like life is not worth living.
