You're like Oh that was one of their best movies. Yeah. He's a did that over and over again even Mickey Work and Kim basing her like he into pieces of and that's a really weird movie. It's one of my mom's favorite movies. I'm so weird. He taps into Kim basing our who only a couple directors. Really. UNTAPPED correctly. Right. Because in the wrong hands, she's just a bad actress a lot wrong hands for pork and big data. Wrong hands unfortunately much like Diane Lane. Yeah, but the thing about can basing her though is that she she doesn't have oh man, they're pretty similar Diane Lane and can be singer except the percentages are off with. Kim. Basing rate she's more she's more volume than Diane Lane is Diane Lane seems like She's not an actress, but she's a schoolteacher who wound up in a movie faith. He's your kids fourth grade teacher rich award was like that too. That was another one who Rachel Ward Richard and ever felt like she was an actual actress just grabbing are from restaurants because they don't she isn't there's nothing showy about Rachel Ward doesn't have anything showy about her Diane Lane doesn't have like an Oscar moment and if he does have like an Oscar clip moment, it's it's something it's very interior, but she's not somebody who's GonNa going to give like like you know like a yelling screaming shouting species all. Body Body language and facial reactions and it's just Great can basing theory area. Oh, sure. Born forty years too late. Oh. Yes. Absolutely. She should have she should have been apeaking actress in nineteen forty six. Yup. But she put look she would have been she would have had a market correction Veronica Lake.

It's like people are numb to the shit now they were Um and even as late as two thousand two, I don't think no but there was something that I think started to shift I think you've got increasingly fewer these movies and the Internet was obviously upon us at this point but I think culturally that the Clinton Lewinsky scandal also an. Erotic thriller I think that we got really prudish in ninety eight at the end of the ninety S. And I think that having gone through that and then September eleventh. Like right after I just think we never got a chance to reset our relationship to sex and I think we just like sex just dropped out like PUTT sex in popular culture in entertainment just dropped out of American popular also weird to go see movies like this in a movie theater as the Years Pass in the twenty first century. Yeah. Well, I mean all the moral issues, but those don't start to creep in until..
