Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Three Kings (1999)

Archie: What's the most important thing in life?
Troy: Respect.
Archie: Too dependent on other people.
Conrad: What, love?
Archie: A little Disneyland, isn't it?
Chief: God's will.
Archie: Close.
Troy: What is it then?
Archie: Necessity.
Troy: As in?
Archie: As in people do what is most
necessary to them at any given moment.

David O. Russell's Iraq War flick came out twenty years today, and I can't really say whether it stands the test of time or not or not as I haven't seen it in probably fifteen years? But I sure did like it at the time, and its themes of war profiteering seem awful smart upon reflection, and most importantly I think we can all agree that we're always blessed whenever Spike Jonze decides to act in front of the camera for us.

Have you seen Three Kings recently?
