More than Glenn Tipton
Some like Jim Nabors
Some Bobby Vinton

The one with Peter Falk and the angel is okay.

I’ve got issues with The Killing of a Chinese Bookie.

Could have been an excellent film.

If the thread was named Fugazi and OP said ‘didn’t make a great album’, I would say agreed

Yeah that’s one, and obviously paris texas too but I think that’s what you’re angling for here you scamp.

In all seriousness, I’ve only seen Husbands. It was extremely good in a very painful way. I don’t have a burning desire to watch it again.

Two of the above.

They’re lyrics, I know nothing about him tbh, or even if this is the right Cassavettes :smiley:

Thought this said John Cassettes. That’s all I have to add.

I really like the Fugazi song but have never seen one of his films.

Yeah me neither. Seems to have the worst ratio of director fame/ critical kudos to films anyone has actually seen of all time. I don’t remember ever seeing them on TV or on any streaming services (and I had MUBI for quite a while)

Unlike say Wim Wenders. Seen a fair few few of his without having to try at all
