A month at the movies #3: I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
The lovely wife saw this film not long after it came out in the mid-2000s, and even though I didn't see it again until very recently, there was one important lesson that we both learned from this movie and never forgot. One lesson that has stuck with us, more than a decade later.
The lesson is this - don't deal drugs, or Malcolm McDowell will come and have sex with you.It doesn't matter who you are, he'll come for you.
And we're not talking about the cute, cherubic Malcolm McDowell of A Clockwork Orange and If... - that might be quite lovely. No, we're talking, old, grizzled, crew-cutted 'I killed Captain fucking Kirk' Malcolm McDowell. Remember how genuinely unsettling he was when he showed up in The Player, or his mad Loomis in the Halloween remakes? It's that Malcolm.
Nobody wants that. Just say no, kids.
