Mental Flotsam, Mental Jetsam

Because the only thing that beats going crazy is going crazy with somebody else

Patience not being one of my best virtues, I find myself really, really wanting to get my hands on a copy of Sleuth. Used to have one, and I don't any more.

In my opinion, the movie is nothing short of terrific. Michael Caine and Sir Laurence Olivier turned in career performances. Both were nominated for Best Actor Oscars; unfortunately they were up against The Godfather. (And each other.) It isn't the greatest script I've ever seen, but it is my favorite; it pushes all the right buttons.

The problem being, naturally, that the movie's gone and become quite rare. And expensive. For a DVD with only one movie in it, the price where one can find it is downright prohibitive.

Still. If anyone happens to have a copy they're not using anymore; or knows where I can find one for less than fifty bucks, do let me know.
