Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

That box set is fantastic value - it's got all his best movies. Just hope they haven't sold out.

its actually quite irksome that Mcginty and Conquering Hero aren't available separately, as I have most of the others already in other editions. Are you listening, Criterion???
But I'd RATHER watch another movie...

Have seen Sullivan's Travels and I thought it was great. Plus, you get to oggle Veronica Lake - what's not to like?
