You know, I'm tired of calling our political leaders names. We have a democracy here in America and even when elections are stolen, we have lots of people with lots of guns. So if our leaders are spawns of Satan, then we must be The Devil.
Now, back to insulting our political leaders... Did that Kenyan/Indonesian-American President just sell out his own health insurance industry plan? Did the EPA just get flushed down the toilet by a Democrat? Did the Democratic Party... including the President just completely get rolled by John Boehner and the Republican Tea Party?
...But they saved Planned Parenthood until 2012!!!
The details are not all in because Barack 'You Lie" Hussein Obama is running for re-election and is still trying to figure out how to spin the story to his ever decreasing constituent base.
How the fuck did we lose this one?
And filmmaker Sidney Lumet died... so I'm really bummed.
You can take your Nolans and your Finchers and your Tarantinos... stick them in the Cash Cab and drive them into the East River. Sidney Lumet made movies. His movies about New York had more guts and realsim and heart and soul than any other New York filmmaker... (sorry Marty, sorry Woody.)
The Pawnbroker.... case closed
Serpico / Dog Day Afternoon / Prince of the City... simply the best...
Then there are the others... Long Days Journey Into Night, Fail-Safe, Murder On The Orient Express, NETWORK, Death Trap, The Verdict, Q&A, Night Falls On Manhattan... the list goes on.
And who else can fail so spectacularly with The Wiz and then have a decade of films like Lumets 1980's... no one, that's who.
