ERH Goes Bona Fide!
"Truly, this man was the son of God!"
Not since John Wayne affirmed the holiness of Jesus Christ - and played the joker in his pack of macho credentials - as an aw-shucks Roman centurion in The Greatest Story Ever Told have the great and the good bowed so low for simple, humble folk.
In a bid to right a couple of the many, many perceived wrongs that bedevil this august blog, the Big Nobs of UK film bible Sight&Sound have not only deigned to recognise the true power of the ERH juggernaut in ramming its cinematic peccadilloes down the throats of its blithe, uncaring readers, but also gives penitence to the film that has long held an unassailable claim to being our very favourite waste of time, Stephen J Tobolowsky's seminal slacker slap-fest Two Idiots in Hollywood. Scroll down to look upon these works, ye Mighty, and despair!
The next stage of our Project Mayhem is a bid to get Money Train preserved in the Smithsonian Library. Watch this space!
