I, on the other hand, loved it. Generally, I think Mamet (at least up until recently - see The Winslow Boy and State and Main ) is a taste that is more often acquired by men than by women.

Unfortuantely, the recent Broadway rendition was quite awful.

Huh. I really enjoyed it (though I never saw the original show). Why do you rate it as awful?

I am not fat (I am bald but I shave my head ) nor moronic, but sometimes I feel like I want a beer and sometimes I feel like I want a glass of DRC.

What percentage of the time that you want DRC do you actually have it?

Believe it or not, everytime. But, I am not a big wine drinker, maybe going through a bottle or two a month and my DRC desires are far less than that. Most of my expensive wine has been gifted and I only feel a need to drink it during special celebrations. Drink some DRC.....smoke an OpusX, if it did it with any frequency I'd be homeless.

Anderson's films are more witty than anything else. A sort of cinematic throwback to the original New Yorker short story, none of that pretense that characterizes today's New Yorker stories.

I find most modern comedy films to be too vulgar, both in the sense of coarseness but especially in being plebeian. I prefer more subtle humor, in the vein of American Beauty or the films by the Coen brothers.
I'm with you, Kent. Which is why I have a special place in my heart for Christopher Guest. Not that a movie being vulgar or plebian means I won't like it....after all, Pink Flamingos is probably my favorite movie of all time right now. I just LOVE early John Waters dialogue. "Baby I love you more than the sound of dogs dying, of babies crying. I love you more than my own filthiness!"

Bwahaha. John Waters has made some serious gems, my wife had made me watch Pink Flamingos when we first started going out, she is a big John Waters fan. I guess I should add Troma's productions to the list although my wife had seen a number of their films before I met her (her depraved sense of humour is a big reason why we get along so well ). "Redneck Zombies" (!), "Cannibal the Musical" and "Orgasmo" come to mind (she has been bugging me to see that one for a while now).

hey, not "people", me. anyway, it's funny, and i'm sticking with that assessment. at the end of a day of dealing with work and kids, i usually don't have what it takes to appreciate woody allen or even wes anderson. maybe christopher guest, because i feel that troupe is becoming today's monty python. but my go-to decompression shows are cartoons like ATHF and Ghost in the Shell, sci-fi like BSG and Doctor Who, hockey, and boxing. of those, the only one my wife watches with me is BSG. she, on the other hand, watches Buffy reruns (which i sometimes watch as well), american idol and survivor when they're current, and Big Love (which I started watching but it's growing tedious).

For all of John Waters's filthiness, he is actually a very dapper and natty man.

Agree.

P.s. I also find Aqua Teen Hunger Force entertaining.

Striped jacket + solid pants...I thought you weren't supposed to do that My favorite Guest movie is Waiting For Guffman. Every character is great, but I crack up every time I think about Corky. "Boy I'd love to ride a sperm whale...among other things."
