What a stupid conversation. ( I'm not talking about My Dinner With Andre. )

May I point out if you don't like the conversation - you don't have to participate.

An attempt to breathe new life into this thread: Can anyone think of any other good dialogue films?

Have they made Marguerite Duras' book The Square into a movie yet? That would be a great dialogue movie. In the meantime off the top of my head...

12 Angry Men
On Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Capote
Network
Inherit the Wind
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Ice Storm
Broadcast News
Double Indemnity
Reversal of Fortune

That's ten - for me the granddaddy will always be...

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf

If the name doesn't strike a bell, it's a documentary profiling Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor's marriage.

Had to really look at films with good dialogues in them:

Solaris
Stalker
Rashoman
The Outrage
Dark City
Hakuchi
Meetings with Remarkable Men
The Leopard
Ludwig
Judgement at Nuremberg
Cleo from 5 to 7
The Conversation
Taxi Driver
Once Upon a Time in Anatolia
The Yes Men Save the World
Project Nim: The Human Chimp

The last one kind of tongue in cheek, but it brings up a question how come it seems the longest dialogue in film other than MDWA appears in a documentary about a chimp?

A bunch of unintelligible sounds - it was about primitive man (hence "quest for fire"winking smiley.

Have you seen Virginia Woolf? Here's one of my favorite scenes from the film...

Yeah I got I just wasn't sure. Incidentally it was Anthony Burgess who invented the primitive language in Quest for Fire.

No I haven't seen Virginia Woolf.

Definitely a classic. If you wonder what all the fuss was about re: Elizabeth Taylor - watch it. Very uncomfortable film at times.

Boooooooooring. Indy's and my bickering was way better than this.

For once I have to agree with Navy.

BTW, Navy - I was up in your area weekend before last and confirmed with my Dad that - yes - his particular Walmart manager said let people walk out with stuff they were shoplifting rather than offend them and lose their business. To which my Dad replied "If they are stealing, they are not doing any business with us." The manager still insisted he let people walk out with stuff if they wanted.

So there you have it - the final word on the subject. smiling smiley

I'm a merchandiser for a company that does impulse merchandising, mostly in supermarkets. I see a lot of shoplifting, mostly in my ghetto stores. A few weeks ago I was talking to a supermarket employee about this, and he said that unless they actually see someone hide an item on themselves and walk out the door, which is very easy to do, the "shopper" will get away with it.

Indy,

Crazy coincidence. I was speaking with Zombie Sam Walton this weekend. He said that everything you've ever claimed about Walmart is false, and that you're a doo-doo head.


PTTP,

What other circumstance would there be? ... other than the shoplifter hides something on their person and the employees either see it or don't see it? Do you mean if another customer, or yourself, were to see the theft and report it to management, that management wouldn't do anything about it?
Re: Boy was this ever prescient...
September 30, 2015 05:43PM
Well there's your problem right there, Navy. Zombie Sam Walton is obviously referring to the story policy that was in place while he was still alive.
Re: Boy was this ever prescient...
September 30, 2015 07:37PM
Actually I misspoke, Navy. The store employee said that if they see someone shoplift and walk out the door, they can confront the suspect, but they can't frisk or detain the suspect. So they almost always get away with it. I told him "Wow! Don't let that get out!"

That's 90% of police work in a nutshell - getting the perp to simply give themselves up in some way. Navy knows because...
