Paper Moon: A Good One #101
I've seen it several times, but my family had not. It's fantastic. Gorgeous black and white deep focus cinematography, a crackling script, and incredible acting all around, including an Oscar nominated role for Madeline Kahn and an Oscar winning role for Tatum O'Neal. Here's a clip. You're probably used to today's lightning fast, MTV-style editing, so let me remind you this is one long take and Tatum is 9 years old.
Or this clip, where Madeline Kahn adroitly skips through 14 different emotions as she bargains with a child, plus the magical blooper they left in at the end.
I watched it on Netflix. It wouldn't kill you to watch it, and you should.
