I'd rather that type of conservative than a lunatic like Pat Buchanan or Ron Paul.

I don't see how you can put Buchanan and Paul in the same sentence; their views are polar opposites. Are you just naming them as two conservatives you think are lunatics, though they have no relation to each other?
Buchanan is a racist, a xenophobe, and a protectionist. Protectionism is completely antithetical to the free market, and therefore is actually very non-conservative view. Paul is a free trader and supports free immigration, 2 things that Buchanan would find heretical. (Personally, I think some of Paul's views on foreign policy are naive and dangerous,  but on economics and regulation, I pretty much agree with him 100%).

Yeah, I wish more people were like Samuel Spade, and less were like David Brooks  Wink
So, even though you don't like David Brooks, you liked this particular piece?

REMINDER RE: FILM NOIR THREADS


It seems that no one but cj and me have been creating threads for noirs, so just a reminder:

if you see a noir that does not have its own thread in the Film Noir Index, please create a thread for it. If the film has a "thread" which is just a link-a-thon to a few posts in this Film Noir Discussion Thread, then you should still create a proper thread for it (and in the first post in your new thread, just provide a link to those old posts). We'd like to eventually have a thread for every film noir,  and that's not going to happen if it's only cj and me that are creating 'em. This Film Noir Discussion Thread should only be used for more general discussions about Film Noir (like books or magazines suggestions, definitions and history of noir, etc.), and not for discussions about specific movies.

Once you have created a new thread for a noir, send cj a PM with the link to that thread, and he will add it to the Film Noir Index  Afro

Definitely one to get.

Masters of Cinema seriously rock. The only other BD I have from them is "Touch of Evil" which was seriously incredible in terms of restoration and also in their covering of all bases by including 5 different versions.

This is a straightforward caper movie; I don't think this is considered a noir.

As the reviewer cited by Beaver says, this movie "loses its grip and falls away on the home strait to deliver less than it initially promises." In my brief review of it in the RTLMYS thread here http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=7645.msg151968#msg151968 I wrote "This is one of those movies that just pisses me off cuz it has really solid potential and then just falls off the table." I rated it a 6.4/10.
This has some great material that can be used for a re-make. But they should keep the 50's suburbia setting.

sterling hayden as   toothpick sucking,  tough as nails detective.
timothy carey, the world's freakest, so far over the top he goes underneath the wire junkie / sex feind.  scheduling allowed
them 3 weeks, but they shot crimewave in just 13 days


nobody holds a candle to timothy cary's twisted, insane drug- fueled ready to go off any second time bomb  dude. Shocked
