I loaded up some video on iKlipz…
1. The ET segment on Infamous which got me worried about Toby Young.
2. The MSNBC segment that Joe Leydon suggested I check out on faux direct-to-dvd movies that are showing up at DVD stores in the wake of major hits, including the aforementioned Snakes on a Train.
3. A classic trailer for Pink Flamingos, Bob Shaye’s breakthrough film, even before he came up with the name, New Line.
4. Last but certainly not least, the world changing scene with Divine that closes the film… don’t watch if you are squeamish… but there is something about the verite’ of it… the raw, anything-for-art, “what, and give up show business?” insanity of it that makes it, to me, one of the seminal moments in movie history. (And if you are thinking of a sexual pun based on that last part of the sentence, you’ll need to watch the whole film… there’s that too.)
