    The Good, The Bad & the Ugly is probably the best western of all-time. Clint's westerns are probably the set bar. (Next to John Ford)

    I admire Helmut Newton's photography. I don't think he's misogynistic because I sense no hostility in his work.

    Hi Johann,
    I didn't notice your message until today. I left the forum because I stopped seeing new movies for a long time and especially because I received death threats from a former member after I disagreed with his opinion. I freaked out because I use my real name and it's real easy to track me down if anyone wants to. I hope you are doing fine and enjoying your life. Cheers,
    Oscar

    Thanks for thinking of me. I moved out of Raleigh about three months ago. We live in Burlington, North Carolina presently; just up the road from Elon University. I saw Itzak Perlman there last Tuesday, so I don't feel too far removed from humanity.
