An Ashtray Full of Pennies

Junk food for thought.

also, like, three years ago for the artist. not that that’s a shining example or anything

I said it once a couple of days ago and I’ll say it again; I liked Jean Dujardin in that movie because the man excels at a kind of acting that hasn’t been en vogue in fucking decades. I was all for his win.

A Fish Called Wanda should be mandatory viewing for all voting Academy members, because it will remind them that dramatic films don’t have the monopoly on great acting, and that there’s a god damn precedent for rewarding comic performances. Good ones, too.

They gave Oscars for comic performances???

Once upon a time, dude. The 80s were a long time ago.

105. A Fish Called Wanda (Charles Crichton, 1988)
I love that movie

John Cleese is a comedy wizard. Everyone in this movie rules.

I take that back: Kevin Kline doing a backwards ninja roll from the lotus position into a stealth pose is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a good long while.

So I’m watching A Fish Called Wanda and the short sequence where Kevin Kline (who won a fucking Oscar for this [remember when they gave Oscars for comic performances?]) grabs a framed picture of Jamie Lee Curtis, punches it out, and faux-apologizes to Michael Palin is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a good long while.

“Alright, here’s what you asked for; a Kit-Kat bar, some lavender bubble bath, a razor blade for your legs, and a bottle of red wine. Congratulations, you’re a fucking stereotype.”
