This is really brilliant
I'm breaking radio silence to say merely that this video counting down from 100 to 1 with movie quotes is really brilliant. What makes it especially brilliant is that he uses great movies for the most part, Sunset Boulevard, Citizen Kane, The Wild Bunch, etc. etc. -- I recognized almost all of the clips (here's the list). Also, many of the numbers in the quotes are not mentioned in passing but are highly pertinent bits of dialogue in the film, for example 57 for The Manchurian Candidate, 50 for Cool Hand Luke, 39 for the The 39 Steps, 11 for This is Spinal Tap. Bravo, Vincent. Let's hope the suits don't order it taken down for a few days at least.
