In two shots we see the list of brands that Misha is crossing out, he crosses out "Burger" with two lines. Later, when he is crossing out other brands, "Burger" has only one line through it. See more »


Bob: [getting drunk] It's not a real burger, Misha, if I can't have extra ketchup. It's just a fucking... it's a fucking facade. This whole country is just like one Hollywood back lot, fucking, facade. And it's a really shitty made one, at that.

Not just a Cult Classic, and important film.
19 January 2013 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

I saw the trailer and I saw the movie that the trailer advertised and it exceeded my expectations. Buy a decibel meter from radio shack, the volume does go up during commercials, even though it's illegal. The consumer based economy is a sham, beef production is a drain on the ecology, you don't need all that "stuff" but you want it because they get you starting with the cartoons you watch as a kid. The film is edgy and in your face, it's clear many people are offended rather than enlightened. The performances of Stoppard, Sobieski, von Sydow and Tambor are extraordinary. It's funny if you have a cynical bone in you body and don't take yourself too seriously because it does strike at the core of our culture. Jamie Bradshaw and Aleksandr Duleraynare a pair to watch. A truly sublime film.
