"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

How about a few days of some good red ass scenes.

Let’s start with a classic:

Curious to see the lineup, here.

Stupid comma...

Welp, I'm open to suggestions even though, hell, you could do just Jack and do just fine, huh?

The classic angry diner patron, and it started a bad year for waitresses across the country. Power to the people to make substitutions!

This film was way over my head when it came out ( I was thirteen), and it took a subsequent viewing while in college at a film appreciation course, the kind of class taken for an easy A, to get it. Class, snobbery, lesbians, self-pity, family secrets, creative process, life choices, and more are all in there. Worth seeing again, but probably dated and the story improbable today in light of the current economic realities.

If you're doing red ass sorts of things along these lines, maybe Michael Douglas's freakout when he wants to order breakfast in "Falling Down". Heck, half that movie is full of "red ass" clips like that, including when those punks want to take his briefcase.

Dude flipped a lid big time in that movie.

Glenngary Glenn Ross..."WHERE'D YOU LEARN YOUR TRADE!?!?"

[6] I was just thinking about that movie. Both Al Pacino and Alec Baldwin have amazing speeches in that one.

Always Be Closing!

Yeah, the entire Glenngary movie is a red ass spiel. I like Baldwin's spaz scene, Al's not as much. I'm thinking about no more wire hangers too.

Baldwin's scene isn't so red ass to me, he's not really mad just busting chops. Pacino on the other hand ... I think that's the one.

There's gotta be something from There Will Be Blood, right? Or am I veering into "just plain nuts" territory (pun intended).

Oh, John Goodman in The Big Lebowski.
