The Noah Cross Game

Jake Gittes: I just want to know what you're worth. Over ten million?
Noah Cross: Oh my, yes.
Jake Gittes: Why are you doing it? How much better can you eat? What can you buy that you can't already afford?
Noah Cross: The future, Mr. Gitts, the future.

I can't believe I've never seen Chinatown. I will move it to the top of my Blockbuster queue immediately.

I bet you will enjoy "Chinatown" more than the Futures Game.

1 That's insane. Best screenplay ever. Not the best movie, but the dialogue is unbelievable. The Casablanca crowd will disagree, but they're wrong. Best. Dialogue. Ever.

Hard to argue. Robert Towne at the peak of his powers. This is the writer that souped up both "Bonnie and Clyde" and "The Godfather" and would go on to pen "Shampoo" a year after "Chinatown." Kicking stuff.

Robert Towne wrote and directed a great sports movie called 'Without Limits' about 70s US track star Steve Prefontaine. Donald Sutherland is great as his coach and the movie really focuses on coaching and discipline towards a goal - a refreshing change to the stereotypical old salt coaches from most sports movies (see Wilford Brimley).

Put 'Without Limits' in your movie queue.

5 It's a fantastic movie. One of my personal fave sports movies, actually. Big Prefontaine fan.

I can't believe I still don't own this. I just don't watch that many movies anymore.

I think the real question is, will the futures game be worse than The Two Jakes?

"The Two Jakes" was one big pile of letdown.

Politicians, ugly buildings, and whores all become respectable when they gold, Mister Gitts.
