    Really good movie. I'll have to watch it again today or tomorrow. Defoe is really awsome in this one. What a character. But is he a character the Pink Pistols would like?

    So let me get this straight, we've got a huge guy theory, and we've got a serial crusher theory.

    I loved the scene where they're getting ready to dash into the peep show. "Is everybody Oh-be Kay-be?"

    Twoblink, if you have the DVD, you absolutely MUST watch the deleted scenes.

    After reading all the raves about TBS, I ran out and bought it. And I was not disappointed.

    Much.

    I thought it was great up until "Da" showed up in his Greek fisherman's Matrix getup...and I tend to have a problem with movies that veer off into ranting pontification...

    But other than that, it was great. And Dafoe was just amazing. That man puts himself out there, which is a lot more than I can say for the majority of "actors" out there.

    Besides the above, Mom's phone call almost put me in the hospital.

    That, and "I'm getting out of the porn business. I don't care who I have to ****"

    Is it dead?

    Mom: "The one with the bigger ****!! Ha-HAHAHAH!!"

    Barkeep: "****!! ***!!" (Sorry, Oleg!)

    On the BDS website, they counted the number of times the F-word was used in the movie. 249, I believe. Surpassed by the Southpark movie, but they had the F-word song to pad their stats.

    What would be cool is if this movie turned into a cult classic like Rocky Horror. Guns, tats, shades, peacoats, and stuffed cats for required attire.

    I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but...

    I will anyway.

    I saw this movie over the weekend (largely based on the glowing reviews I read here) and was sorely disappointed.

    Bad acting, bad narrative structure, hackneyed plot, terrible cinematography, bad directing...

    Suffice to say, I wish I could have my $12 (for the DVD) and 2 hours back.

    Full Disclaimer - I am somethng of a movie snob (not in the "I just loved that foreign film by Jacques Snoot-Nose about 3 young women in Paris discussing their taste in post-Enlightenment art" sense - if anything foreign films are even worse than American ones) but I know what I like, and this wasn't it.

    Hey, if we all liked the same thing, there'd be only one flavour of yoghurt.

    It's a good, fun, unhook your brain beer-and-munchies movie. Fine directing, beautiful camerawork and ground-breaking plot ... best go someplace else. But jolly good fun for them that likes it.

    Lately I've become a "sound snob" in DVDs... Signs was pretty good in that regard, and it actually coulda been sorta scary, if I'd just been able to stop muttering "get a gun, you idiot..."

    I saw this during shot show weekend. While a cool premise it is absolutely the closest thing to gay porn I've ever seen in my life.

    I must commend you guys for being pretty tolerant of your entertainment choices. Clearly no homophobes in this crowd. ;)

    Gay porn?!?!

    Sorry, don't see it. Quite the opposite, if you ask me.

    Steyr: I agree with BamBam-31 and cant figure out how you came to that conclusion.

    Must have been the guy who wanted to cuddle with Willem Defoe or possibly the scene of him in a dress.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't remember Bruce Willis wearing a dress in Die Hard.

    And just so you guys know, I have no anti homosexual agenda. I got a real live and let live attitude. I just don't care to see homo stuff on film or tv.
