Roz loved Requiem for a Dream when she was younger, that’s the closest. @pbyrne Hellboy II and Pan’s Labyrinth are the two I really love.

He seems like a desperate high school principal doing a "funny voice" in an assembly. @davo_arid It's not one of Lubitsch's all-time best, but it's kind of startling how quickly he figured out how to make sound movies. @davo_arid It's baffling to me that this beat The Love Parade, a movie that's more confident and engaging in every way. @davo_arid Ha, thanks.
