    "A light-hearted romp that leads straight into darkness and back through the shadows on the wall."– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

Dr. Fauth recommends rewatching this every 3-6 months. I see new stuff every time, (there’s a lamp post in that iconic Sixth Avenue shot; the Vegas waitress on the far right can’t stop giggling), and my understanding of what it means also keeps shifting. Best insight: you could totally remake this movie, shot for shot, with scenes taken from GTA: San Andreas. Yes, really. One of my top ten films of all time; it’s pure cinema.
