for my taste, this worked out strangely. much more sensible would have been Raging Bull or Taxi Driver against 2001 or Strangelove. so it's now sort of the battle between the very good but not the best movies of these directors.

the Shining means more to me, though. i hope Kubrick pulls it out...

I'm telling Kubrick to go grab his fuckin' shine box.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.
