It's ridiculous that it isn't. If at the end of the day I feel like smoking a joint I do it. It changes the perception of what I've been through all day.More Robert Altman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Titanic I thought was the most dreadful piece of work I've ever seen in my entire life. Another film that I think is equally bad was American Beauty. So badly acted and directed. But people like that.More Robert Altman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

There was not a lot of dialogue. The titles were just to keep you up. It's the visual stimulation that hits the audience. That's the reason for film. Otherwise, we might as well turn the light out and call it radio.More Robert Altman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What is an ending? Theres no such thing. Death is the only ending.More Robert Altman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
