Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Ritchie: All right. What do you want me to
tell you? Get a fuckin' divorce, then.
Vinny: Divorce is fuckin' evil, Ritchie.
You got some fuckin' really bad advice.
Ritchie: Evil spelled backwards is live.
Vinny: You're a corny fuck, you know that?

A happy 20 to Spike Lee's serial killer drama, which I maybe haven't seen in 20 years? I don't know, I must have watched it again after the first time since I remember liking it a lot and back then, before I had the ability to watch literally any movie at any moment, if I liked something I re-watched it. I know I had this movie on VHS at one point, so I must have. But the memory's very vague. Have you re-watched Summer of Sam lately? I'm curious how it holds up, and also if I'll still feel the same way I once did about Adrien Brody...

Never thought Adrien Brody would show so much... promise.

I've re-watched it a few months ago and loved it even more. The entire cast is fantastic, but Leguizamo stole the movie for me. Love the intensity and atmosphere of the movie, such an underappreciated gem.
