rewatched the parallax view last night just in time for kissingers kiss off. seemed appropriate. extra legal assassinations were definitely part of his realpolitik bag. im sure there were any number of plotholes but the one that jumped out at me was the fact that beattys character was part of a group that may or may not have been targeted for assassination yet he attempts to infiltrate the organization. i realize it was pre-internet but they seemed pretty organized. there must have been a folder with his picture in it at the very least yet he made no effort to alter his appearance, of course, because he is warren beatty and that sells tickets, but i though that was kind of absurd even if the world supposed he was already dead. 

so the movie leaves you wanting but i suppose that is the point. no easy answers just post watergate/kennedy conspiracy deep state unease.

love that theres a bot on reddit that if you mention sex panther from anchorman it will automatically post the quote in this case it was for a vintage 70s ad for a cologne called mandate in which the scene gives off a distinct roofie vibe hence the allusion. admittedly the scened being mentioned multiple times made me sad for the state of discourse but clearly i am part of the problem.

It's called Sex Panther® by Odeon©.

It's illegal in 9 countries.

It's also made with bits of real panthers, so you know it's good.

60% of the time, it works every time.
