Luis Buñuel, Guy Debord and Len Deighton. Buñuel and Deighton meet Debord in his Parisian apartment. After eating calf’s brains in black butter prepared by Deighton, they empty a bottle of gin. Then Debord insults Deighton for writing for Playboy. Deighton takes Buñuel’s pistol and shoots Debord. Buñuel makes a film about it!

That school and university would be the best time of my life. That’s what our teachers used to tell us, and they were completely wrong.
Freedom of choice
Parallel universes. Actually still on the fence about this one.
The possibility of a better world.
The police are your friends and helpers. No, they are utter utter cunts.
