Actually, my favorite movie
is Big Bad Love, with Arliss Howard.
He plays the writer Leon Barlow.† Based on
a good old boy from a book of short stories by Larry Brown.
Heís a drunk and a sometime housepainter and he has a friend
who is a fellow
a wreck and his friend is brain-damaged.† The train pulls away
a boxcar in his yard he was painting a mural on.† A woman
on a black horse throws his manuscript pages to the winds.
Another woman slings a black high-heel pump at the 55-gal oil drum
he keeps his rejection slips in, and says, ďAre you ready?Ē
Ready for what?† Nobody is ever ready.
If you think youíre ready, youíre fucked.
His father in a freezer. †A cameo by Larry Brown.
ďTake the highway, son.Ē
Never buy a Volkswagen made by Mexicans.
Itís okay to drive around the house but you donít want to
take it on the road.† Itís like having a little dick.
