don't forget Eating Raoul

Pete Bogs

I finally watched Coolhand Luke last weekend, which includes the egg-eating scene as well as that "washing the car windows with big breasts" scene... food, sex and cinema, as you say...

The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover is perhaps one of the most disturbing mixing of the two... intercutting between the slicing of vegetables and removing clothes... naked in the fish truck, etc.

Chaplin's shoe-eating scene is a tragic-comic masterpiece... there's nothing else to eat, so leather shoes are the closest thing to meat he can find... he makes us admire him because he's able to make a meal of it, right down to rolling the laces as spaghetti... the man was amazing...

Kim writes: First off, contrary to popular opinion, Meg Ryan's fake orgasm, "I'll have what she's having" -- diner display is the least funny moment in the otherwise charming romantic comedy.

Hear hear! A wholly inconsistent momenht wherein the repressed, uptight, publicly-restrained Sally defies everything the movie is about, and in an unfunny way to boot!

Back to Scorsese for a moment: RAGING BULL: a toss up from the opening bout's post-breakfast of steak "It defeats it's own purpose!" and a slowly bloating Jake LaMotta's gut in front of the tv set w/submarine sandwich leading to his "Did you fuck my wife?" harrangue of his brother Joey


Completely awesome list, I've seen most of these too! I really need to rewatch The Miracle Worker, I had seen it several times as a kid, and it had a very powerful effect on me. It's been over ten years since I've seen it however. Speaking of the Big Heat, the coffee scene is a stand out... but I'm not sure if it qualifies as I don't remember if anyone was drinking it in the scene.
