    #21: “Watch any Kurosawa film”

    Red Beard: “Poverty's a political problem they say. But what has politics ever done for the poor? Has a law been passed to get rid of poverty and ignorance?“

    #5: “Watch a movie set in Texas”

    This film is an exemplar of sheer mid-50s Hollywood excess in terms of size, scale, storytelling, and most of all, over the top performances, from Liz Taylor to Rock Hudson, to James Dean, who is absolutely insane. Still too long, and the subtle (and not so subtle) racism is hard to watch, but it’s entertaining to say the least.
    Also: a very young Dennis Hopper, showing the unhinged man he would become.
