Bottle Rocket on Criterion

Abe Henry: The world needs dreamers.
Future Man: Excuse me?
Abe Henry: I don’ think so. You know one day your going to wake up and realize that you no longer have a brother. And you no longer have any friends. And on that day, I’m gonna be front and center laughing my fucking ass off.
Abe Henry: [laughs] John!
[continues laughing]
Abe Henry: John!

Abe Henry: I don’t mean to offend you, Bob. But your brother’s a cocksucker. Does that offend you?
Bob: No, that didn’t offend me.
Abe Henry: Good.

Clean, Shaven

Just watched Clean, Shaven, an amazing eerie journey that follows a paranoid schizophrenic as he tries to find his daughter after being released from an institution. The majority of the film let’s you experience the sights and sounds as the main character feels them (lots of haunting static ambient echo and voices). Very light on dialog and plot but strangely engrossing. You’ll recognize the main character, Peter Greene who’s roll right after this film was Zed in Pulp Fiction.
