You know the first attraction I ever built when I came down from Scotland? It was a Flea Circus, Petticoat Lane.
Really quite wonderful. We had a wee trapeze, and a merry-go-round... carousel and a seesaw.
They all moved...motorized, of course, but people would say they could see the fleas. "Oh, I see the fleas, mummy! Can't you see the fleas?"
Clown fleas and high wire fleas and fleas on parade...
But with this place, I wanted to show them something that wasn't an illusion.
Something that was real.
Something that they could...see and touch.
An aim...not devoid of merit.
The ending of No Country for Old Men is pseudo-profound rubbish. The movie is dazzling from a technical standpoint but worthless thematically.
I like to picture Brannagh's Henry riding in and decapitating President ID$ about 5 seconds into his incredibly lame speech.
I stand by my choice. Epic Speech was Epic.
Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown... the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here. And now, for the first time, we are bringing to you, the full story of what happened on that fateful day. We are bringing you all the evidence, based only on the secret testimony, of the miserable souls, who survived this terrifying ordeal. The incidents, the places. My friend, we cannot keep this a secret any longer. Let us punish the guilty. Let us reward the innocent. My friend, can your heart stand the shocking facts about grave robbers from outer space?
I disagree. I found it to be a quite compelling look at three conflicting worldviews that, ultimately, disproves all of them.
I must have not grasped the finer underpinnings of its narrative, then. Because I understood the final scene involving the killer's car crash to be the culmination of the film's message.
Excuse the fan edit, best vid I could find.
