Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Holy Smoke (1999)

PPJ: I don't want to disempower you. If you want
disempowerment, you go back to mother India.
See how they treat women there. Or didn't you notice all
those little ultrasounds beeping away? So that people can
say, "Oh, my God, it's a girl!" And flush her out of the border.
Ruth: They're more honest.
PJ: Excuse me?
Ruth: They're more honest in their hatred of women!
PJ: I don't hate women. I love ladies.
Ruth: Ha! Ladies. You wouldn't know any. I bet you date
little barbie dolls, don't you? "Oh you so brainy!
You're so big! Can I suck your dick?" Can I be alone now?

This movie feels ripe for a re-watch - it's been years.
Anybody watched it lately? Happy 64 to Jane Campion today!
