The Last Seduction There’s not that much to the rest of her career, but for one hour 50 minutes Fiorentino is up there with Barbara Stanwyck and Bacall. As she’s deadly, sexually voracious, cynical and impossibly smart. She starts by ripping off her husband during a drug deal and gets nastier Travis Benjamin Jersey from there. Dahl had worked up to this film with Kill Me Again and Red Rock West, two ultimately conventional film noir pastiches. But The Last Seduction marries the charge of Forties Hollywood to the amoral freedom of the Seventies to create something that’s gleefully sadistic. Vitally, neither nor the film have any soft spots, no false moments of vulnerability: there is nothing but ruthlessness here. There was some grumbling that Fiorentino didn’t get nomination because the film had premiered on cable TV, but that’s irrelevant: no performance this good is ever recognised by the Academy anyway. 10. Chungking Express Wong Kar- is Hong Kong cinema’s romantic, a addicted to neon and Sixties west coast pop. Chungking Express is a pair of elegant short stories linked by a fast food counter called the Midnight Express. Both halves follow lovelorn cops. the first, naive No 223 eats 30 tins of pineapple dated 1 to get over a girl called, goes to a bar, and attempts to fall with a mysterious woman a blond wig and shades. Later, No 663 loses his Travis Coons Jersey girlfriend after bringing her fish and chips place of her usual chef’s salad, and becomes the object of obsession for, a waitress addicted to the Mamas And The Papas’s ‘California Dreamin. Like the best short stories, the halves of Chungking Express are spare, drily funny with much left out and plenty unresolved. And there are great details, from the sole of a shoe getting stuffed with heroin to No 663 running around his apartment with a model airplane because he’s with a stewardess. Wong Kar-‘s work is often described as cool, but it’s never cool it doesn’t know when to be silly.

Your team: Oakland Raiders Your 2013 record: 4. the past 11 years, the Raiders have had five or fewer wins nine times. If you offered any Raiders fan a magic pill that made it that Hue and had never left, they would take that pill and then chop it up, snort half of it, and sell the other half the parking lot for a street value of seven dollars. Your coach:. Here’s actual headline: not too concerned with Raiders pass defense deficiencies. O RLY? Why not, who’s going to be fired four months from now? I think when last year we were kind of a little bit of the same boat… it takes a little while to get that part of your defense down. It’s really not a concern of mine. Nor should it be, given that the Raiders pass defense was great last year LOL JK THEY WERE FUCKING HORRIFIC. Guys, they were 28 th the league only because teams passed a lot on Oakland when they were up big! ‘t you get it? Not a concern. Your quarterback: WHY,?! WHY? Anyway, the Raiders have spent most of this offseason trying to convince everyone that Schaub didn’t die a molasses factory explosion last. Here’s Schaub praising the Raiders for giving him more control of the offense, because you need the who threw a pick six four straight to be your de facto OC. Here’s linebacker Smith praising Schaub for his mojo, which must be the saddest mojo history. And here’s saying Schaub is as good as Peyton Manning and somehow keeping a straight face while doing : We have a quarterback now that’s on par with the quarterbacks this division. I bet is drunk, like, the time. Apparently, nothing about imploding 4 team concerns him at all, not even the fact that the Raiders still suffer from Gannon Syndrome and bring any washed-up QB hopes that he sees the Raiders logo and magically turns into Football Blackbeard. No one here can admit that they work on the NFL’s version of Shutter Island.
