Ah, a few people have mentioned Slings & Arrows to me now. In my abundant free time, I shall have to make my way through the YouTube snippetry.

It won't make you forget Beckett, but it's utterly pleasant.

MILLER'S CROSSING is not overlooked by me. I caught that during a late night showing in the student union. One year during finals they were showing movies all night until dawn.

I cannot recall if I went in there to avoid studying, take a short break, or really wanted to see the flick. I sure did like it though. Great color (literal and figurative), atmosphere, backstabbing, and the scary Dane.

I love the Fleischer Brothers version of SUPERMAN. Good choice.

SLINGS AND ARROWS sounds like it a good thing also. I've never heard of it before. I love backstage stuff.

Miller's Crossing is fantastic Coen Bros fun and I love the vocabulary they created for it, the noirish feel and John Polito's oozing creepiness. My brother and I quote his lines all the time (apropos of absolutely nothing).

"Which hand?"

I have a set of SLINGS & ARROWS DVDs that I hope to get to during my convalescence.
