Waiter: Well, are you ready to order now or. . .?
Eddie: No.
Rose: Yes, goddammit. I’m going to have the fucking poached salmon, with the son-of-a-bitching rice, and a dirty bastard salad with a shitload of Roquefort dressing. Thank you. And um, who knows what this asshole wants.

Female Filmmaker Friday: Dogfight, 1991 (dir. Nancy Savoca)


I first saw this film last summer and was shocked that I had never seen it before. It’s so my kind of film, but somehow over the years it slipped past my radar. It’s one of those films that is insanely touching, without once ever being schmaltzy. This post is spoilery.

Doreen Piggot: Honey, yesterday I hit a kid.
Honey Bush: What?
Doreen Piggot: I hit an eight-year-old kid. He wasn’t hurt. I just kind of brushed him, knocked him down. But it was so close. He’s such a little sweetie too. I tried to give him a lift to his house. He told me his mom and dad told him never to get into the car with anybody unless they said it was okay.
Honey Bush: You’re very lucky, you know that?
Doreen Piggot: If I’d been going faster, I would’ve killed him. Imagine. How could you get over that? You couldn’t. I came home. I told Earl our whole life could change. Earl tells me to go on a diet. That’s all he could think of to say.
