Last night I watched "Paths of Glory" (1957), which was excellent. I'm actually surprised I'd never seen it before.
I recently read "Lisey's Story" (I would have read it years ago, but I lost my copy when I was about 100 pages into it, and never obtained another; the one I read was from the library), and was so curious about all the references to "The Last Picture Show," that I viewed that too. It was OK. I wasn't really that into it...but it was kinda erotic, LOL.
