This clip has everything I want in a movie:
- Child torture
- Shiny things
- The juxtaposition of romantic theme music and violence
In 1971, my hero Melvin van Peebles had his tweenage son graphically simulate sex with a 40 year old prostitute. 18 years later, Alejandro Jodorowsky had a fat guy in sequins stoically carve a massive tattoo into his 10 year old son’s chest. I can only hope that when I grow up, I’ll be “the cool dad” too.
