      Bad Lieutenant, Bonnie and Clyde, Far from Heaven and Dial M for Murder are faves. I hope you got to see the original, now-suppressed version of Bad Lieutenant with Schooly D’s Signifying Rapper on the soundtrack.

      I really need to see Where the Sidewalk Ends.

  • Omar Pineda

    I loved all those too. I own the original Bad Lieutenant DVD, but i don’t think it has Schooly D’s song in it. I’ve heard of that version plenty. As far as i know that’s the only thing that was taken out of it, shame too. Where’ve you see that version?

    And Where the Sidewalk Ends is an excellent Noir film. Has a great and simple title sequence too

  • Omar Pineda

    Wow, so when it came out in 1992?

  • Omar Pineda

    Wow, 17. You’re one of few to have seen that version now. I saw there was a version with Schooly D’s song in the movie on some torrent.

  • Omar Pineda

    I ought to have a VCR for some things, that’s one. Some definitive editions of movies or films in general only have a life on VHS.
