Who Is Cletis Tout?

Terrific film.
It's almost hypnotic.
You know why?
The third act.
It has a third act.
No, thanks.
You don't see that
in movies these days.

These days...
it's all about the gimmick.

Great set up...
Great first act...
...then, "let's blow
something up."

When you concentrate
on the gimmick

and you shortchange
the ending

the audience
leaves unfulfilled.

Man, there's nothing like...
...a great movie.
I love the movies.
I mean, the old movies
you know, where it
was all about the story.

I've got a story.
I'll bet you do.
Yeah, yeah,
this one's got it all-

prison break, jewel heist...
Pitch me.
Pinch you?
Pitch me.
It's a Hollywood thing.
It's where the asshole
with all the power

you know,
makes you dance like a monkey.

What's in it for me?
Maybe you get
to live a little longer.

Maybe if your story's so good
when that pager rings,
I might forget where I am...

I'm at the movies.
Nobody remembers their job
at the movies.

Uh, well, let's see, uh...
I think it was 1977,
New York City...

no, no. No, no, no.
