Thanks. Thanks a lot. Now they're stuck in my brain.

Miller's left me cold. Haven't seen The Departed.

Watching Crossing right now. We'll see how this turns out. So far Crossing has more trees which is a plus in my book.

The music alone in Miller's Crossing makes it the better film.

I dunno, The Departed has a kicking soundtrack and I usually don't go for that sort of thing.

I smell a debate coming.

I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Bad, bad song.

I wouldn't listen to it on its own but in that moment in the film it was absolutely perfect. Perhaps one of the best uses of a song this decade.
