^^^Ouch. What did you say to Renoir, De Sica, Ozu, Godard, Herzog, Bergman, Truffaut, Kurasowa, Cassavetes, Woody Allen, Fellini, & Antonioni, et al?

Definitely watch Two-Lane Blacktop next. It has Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton (towering pillars of 70s cinema), and one of the best endings of any film, ever. Also, James Taylor and Dennis Wilson are the surprisingly good lead actors. The director (Monte Hellman) only made a handful of films. In addition to being the (uncredited) second unit director on the original Robocop, he did another film with Warren Oates and Harry Dean Stanton. It's called Cockfighter. As...
Mildly annoyed that the extra 40 minutes listed in the schedule was just an episode of another series. Trying to fool the people with DVRs, AMC?
