    And it's happened once again
    I'll turn to a friend
    Someone that understands
    And sees through the master plan
    But everybody's gone
    And I've been here for too long
    To face this on my own
    Well, I guess this is growing up

    Big fan of these. And it hurts my heart to see Nocturnal Animals above Last Tango.

    I take it you're a fan of Last Tango? I didn't get the appeal at all I'm afraid, and so far I'm finding that Bertolucci isn't my cup of tea.

    It's been over a decade since I last saw it, but there was a point in time when Bertolucci was one of my favorite directors, and I probably would have put four of his films (Last Tango, Conformist, Last Emperor, and Dreamers) in my top 100. I've cooled a bit on him since then, but long story short I'm a fan.

    At this moment, however, I'd say my hatred for Nocturnal Animals burns brighter than my love of Bertolucci/Last Tango. One of my least favorite movies ever.
