I recommend "The Counterfeit Traitor" for emotional depth and compelling storytelling.

Now you did it, you reminded me of a story...

Many years ago I was looking through the CD bins in the classical section at Suck Buy and saw the separator card for Pachelbel, so I thought I'd look through it. Disc after disc with the Canon in D, then I saw one entitled "Pachelbel's Greatest Hits". Cool, thought I, I'm sure the guy wrote lots of other stuff, it would be good to hear some of the rest of his life's work, too. Then I looked at the list of tracks, which caused me to refocus on the CD title: "Pachelbel's Greatest Hit". Ah, no plural after all. The CD was about 9 different versions (including one vocal arrangement!!!!) of the Canon in D.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

LMAO. I rarely hear a vocal arrangement of Canon in D and haven't been able to find one ever since.

I would easily add Blazing Saddles, Good, Bad and Ugly, Brazil and the Shining to the list.

As much as you and I agree, Friedkin was 100% correct, the worldwide core 'repeat' audience was teenage girls infatuated with Leonardo Di Caprio.

James Cameron mistakenly thinks he made 'Citizen Lawrence of Casablanca' but the reality was a corny 'Saturday date movie' love story.

The true test is always thus, can you watch it again ?

I can't.
