Five Short Poems on the Films of Brad Pitt


From the New York Times magazine:

Thelma and Louise:
Your abs alone deserved a
Star on Walk of Fame.

Moral of Se7en:
When a psycho sends FedEx
Never sign for it.

Ocean’s Eleven
Art? No. But we do watch each
TBS repeat.

We swear Seven Years
in Tibet
flew by; felt like
No more than six, tops.

Tree of Life: Cannes prize!
So let’s all just forgive and
Forget Meet Joe Black.


About Jackrabbit Slim

Location: Vegas, Baby! I’m much older than the other whippersnappers here, a baby boomer. I tend to be more snobbish about film, disdaining a lot of the multiplex fare for “cinema.” My favorite films: Woody Allen’s oeuvre (up until about 1990), The Godfather, The Graduate, A Hard Day’s Night, Pulp Fiction. Politics: Well, George McGovern was my political hero. I’m also a prickly atheist. Occupation: Poised to be an English teacher in Las Vegas. For many years I was an editor at Penthouse Magazine. My role on this blog seems to be writing lots of reviews and being the resident Oscar maven.
