Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Bent (1997)

Horst: We had a boy like that in school.
Used to lead us in silences.
Max: Ok. I'll explain. Ok. We have to move rocks.
Horst: Yes sir.
Max: You move one rock at a time.
Horst: Yes sir.
Max: You take it over there.
Horst: Yes sir.
Max: When that pile is complete, you take
one rock at a time and move it back.
Horst: You move it back? You move rocks from
there to there and then from there to back again?
Max: Yes sir.

Meant to mention this yesterday but great news from the home market as Bent finally got released on blu-ray this week in a fancy restoration with some extras - they don't mention any cut scenes but they do promise "behind the scenes footage" and I'm hoping there's at least a hint in there of the extended "Clive Owen & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau orgy scene" that I've mentioned before having seen when the film played the local gay film festival when I was in college circa 1997. You get a little glimpse of it in the film as was finally released, but I vividly remember - you remember such things! - the scene being longer that first time I saw it. Such things should not be lost unto time! I know there's more to this film to appreciate - much more - but this is a white whale of a windmill that I've been chasing for decades now, it's driving me mad! But  anyway I guess at least no matter what we'll always have that kiss...
