I was so impressed with some of the characters in "Beat" that I tried to find a biography to read. I am still looking, though I did find some great Lucien Carr quotes:
"Why don’t you just start with the second paragraph?”
"One reporter quoted Carr as having two acceptable standards for a good lead: 'Make me cry or make me horny.'"
Most unacceptable death scene, which I will tease about forever: Mr. Reedus being eaten by cannibals. He was hanging by the neck and they were screaming and he was screaming and I do believe intestines were coming out. And even so, pretty blue eyes showing through all the filth and blood and gore. Not bad. Almost made it worth all the shrieking!! Don't get me wrong. Wonderful death scene, very well done ... just ... ewww ... if you don't like actors you like get killed, having them get eaten is even worse! :)
Only acceptable death scenes: Kiefer Sutherland as David in "Lost Boys". Went with class. John Cussack in "Identity". Hated that is happened but it was for a beautiful reason, he saved everyone else remaining. Jonathan Casey (Reedus/Bad Seed). Again hated that it happened, cried my eyes out, but the monologue leading up to it, the decision on his face when he realized, the small smile and nod that yeah, this was the only way ... yeah ... worked. Sucked big time, but it worked. :)
I hear actors prefer to play bad guys where they get to do these types of parts. Oh, I just wish they weren't so hard to watch!! :)
