You can't get rid of us, either. Many have tried.

I must admit I was not a fan of The Last Picture Show and based on these comments and John Ritter...I'm scared.

The only reason I haven't said anything about this yet is because the DVD is only just coming in from netflix tomorrow. As for the rest of you, there's really no excuse.

I didn't realize this film was about NSW's first visit to a brothel.

Interesting stuff.

Boy, that Patti Hansen sure was pretty. Didn't she used to be married to Keith Richards or something? And all I know of Dorothy Stratten is that she was murdered and that Star 80 movie was about her.

I honestly don't know what I thought of the movie. Obviously, it just screamed 80s, but in a kind of charming way.

And Audrey Hepburn always classes up the joint.

But the dialogue was just too much, and I kept thinking "Shut up, nobody talks like that." Maybe they did in the early 80s in NYC. I wouldn't know - I was, like, 7 and living in Wisconsin. We sure didn't talk like that. But then again, I didn't have many conversations about love and being a detective and junk.

The dialogue was so incredibly heightened and only sometimes-stylized it was really off-putting for the first half hour or so. And the style of the film itself never really contextualized that, so it all seemed like a bizarre sort of mash-up of ideas... and John Ritter doing lazy slap-stick. I'm still trying to decide where the whole detective story angle really figures in, the heightened dialogue being rooted in that obviously, aside from merely a set-up for some screwball romantic comedy situations. Since like I said, the mash-up of genres never really takes off in any meaningful direction, and aesthetic of the film is mainly realistic, so all the pieces seem to just flounder around with little framework.

That said, I did manage to get into the swing of things by a certain part, the the movie does have its charms, including a few really effective sight gags. Also, major credits to DP Robby Muller, who I was surprised and extremely delighted to see pop up in the opening credits. God, what a talent. The way his camera captures NYC here is just blissful.

Mueller = best living cinematographer? And by that I of course mean favorite. Obviously a front-runner, in any event, but I wonder how he figures in for people around these parts. I'd say he's not. But that doesn't mean I don't love him.
