IMAGINARY BOYFRIENDS UPDATE!
I’ll put a theme on this one: favorite movie bad guys.
Bill the Butcher, from The Gangs of New York. The movie was deeply flawed (the soundtrack! What was Scorsese thinking? And though he is a perfectly decent actor, DiCaprio was horribly miscast here), but he stole the show.
What I like in this scene is that she’s afraid. They’ve done this dance before, so she shouldn’t be scared…she knows that he’s pushing it. Messing with her; intimidating her.
Sam Rothstein. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the perfect man (aside from being mobbed up. I wouldn’t mess with that). And I empathize with him because he falls in love with dirtbags. Ginger was the worst person in the world in this movie. And it’s too bad, because in the beginning, she was cool. It takes a lot of talent to be a successful, popular hoe like that. Sharon Stone nailed it.
Frank from Once Upon a Time in the West. I was glad to see him die at the end, though, because he was a total freak. A total sadistic freak. If I met him in real life I wouldn’t like him because he’s a crazy sadistic mofo who murders women and children, but I have to admit that I’m fascinated by the way he fucks with people in this film. The tension in the scene where he rapes Claudia (and yes, he did rape her, even though she was cooperating…she didn’t really want to do it, it was all an act), you can feel her terror as she scrambles to save her ass. The terror, to be in the vicinity of someone like that. (I’m always amazed at the way morons, almost all of whom are male, misread that scene. They get all affronted that she slept with the man who killed her family and was threatening to kill her! Like, what would you do if this guy showed up at your door? Kill yourself like an honor killing before you’d allow him to rape you? What are you, a fanatical muslim? You’d sleep with him too, if he wanted, and you’re a dude!)
Sergio Leone had to have been terrorized as a child. The way that he captures the helplessness. Children are practically slaves. It’s terrible.
He looks like my father, Franz Adler, at 1:30.
DONALD RUMSFELD! He is such a bastard! A 24-carat, solid gold bastard! A sarcastic, smug, loathsome jerk. And he went to Princeton, so you know that’s half of his problem right there.
I’d fuck him. Once.
He probably murders prostitutes on his days off.
Jack Nicholson’s character, Darrel (sp?), in The Witches of Eastwick. That movie was so funny. So, so funny. What made it so hilarious is that Nicholson was completely gross. Completely gross! Not to mention absurd, which is the worst, least sexy thing a man can be! With that stupid halfassed pony tail and his servant with a turban! GROSS! He’s like some sleazy pickup artist! If I was caught in public with him, I’d die of shame.
I’d do him. Once.
