So was the fight between Cliff and Bruce Lee flashback or daydream?
I like this guy’s take …
Yes, it’s good to pick out a few things that you adore and roll with it.
Fight scene was a flashback.
This film was worth it for the “I’m not gonna be a damn worthless drunk” scene, and the comical “you dirty hippies” overtones.
Cliff Booth [tripping on acid]: “I remember you. What’s your name?”
Tex Watson: “I’m the devil and I’m here to do the devil’s business.”
Cliff Booth: “Naw, it was dumber than that. Rex?”
“”He said I am the devil, and um… I’m here to do some devil shit.”
Also Red Apple Cigarettes FTW!
Also Burt Reynolds screenplay credit!
Gone too soon!
I actually had the Burt Reynolds autobiography in my hands at Barnes & Noble the other day (DISCOUNTED BOOKS RULE!), but I bought Costello’s instead.
The various Elvises in this forum applaud your purchase.
I kind of loved and hated it. It was pleasing eye candy and mostly fun as hell, but the Manson alt history stuff was an eye roll for me. I also was a little uneasy about the Bruce Lee scene, more because it made him look like a doofus than the fact that Pitt’s character more or less kicked his ass. That said, I’m sure I’ll watch it again at least once.
