I sense you did not like NBK. I believe this to be the most important film Stone has ever made. Don't you think the quick cuts--as well as the exaggerated characters, gore, language, camera angles, effects (color especially)-- fit the statement?. . .the statement being that we are an extreme people in an extreme world, in need of extreme sensations namely a shot change a second. . . .a dynamic shot at that. And hey. . .my favorite filmmaker is Jim Jarsmusch! Later.
