Treasure Hunt: Dialogue

Here’s another clue. Thank you, brilliant writing and truly great art in general, for expressing the ineffable and getting it right.



  1. $#@& poetry. WHO talks like that? Let’s all talk like that.

    John Patrick Shanley also wrote another of my favorite movies (not nearly so elegant but still great), Joe vs the Volcano — and sometimes you can tell.

    “I bribed them to sing a song that would drive us insane and make our hearts swell and burst.”


  2. I rented Moonstruck from the Greenport Library today (you’ll appreciate that). I was the only one in the whole library, besides the weird librarians. I’ll go and see if I can rent Joe and the Volcano tomorrow—I haven’t seen it.

    This reminds me so much of old Brando: I want you to come upstairs and GET IN MY BED!


  3. I totally appreciate that you went to the GP library. Meanest librarians anywhere, except Poppy.

    And, YES! you’re right, he’s TOTALLY channeling Brando.

    Joe vs the Volcano: people love it or hate it. I love it — especially the parts about clothes and luggage. But I don’t want to steer you wrong — it’s great, but it’s no Moonstruck.
