Baby, you got those cunt eyes.

I had to laugh at:

1. Martin Scorsese- best gangster movies of all time and consistently makes classics and is very original. ( Departed, Goodfellas)

since The Departed was a remake of Infernal Affairs.  Don't ge me wrong, Scorsese is a fantastic director, it just struck me as funny.

He's been on record to say that he's never actually seen the internal affairs. And I'm well aware it's a remake but the way he made it was brilliant. His originality is in every scene and with his vision. Phone Post 3.0

Lately been on a Werner Herzog kick and would recommend his films (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Rescue Dawn, Grizzly Man, etc) to anyone.

Can't wait for Inherent Vice either!

I liked rescue dawn a lot.

Inherent Vice looks to be a classic, The casting looks wonderful. You can see some pictures online of Phoenix in full costume, he looks very badass. Phone Post 3.0
