Heyyy alright, Mr. Mckee! That's the best stuff in your book- when you take a stereotypical notion and trample it. Good stuff!

Rick looks at her closely.

RICK

Eight weeks. We come from Bulgaria.
Oh, things are very bad there, Monsieur.
A devil has the people by the throat. So,
Jan and I, we, we do not want our children
to grow up in such a country.

RICK

I think the reason some people may think you're "anti-European" is because it is assumed that intelligent, critics of art would obviously hate Hollywood because it's just "inherently terrible" or whatever. And so any criticism of Hollywood is almost invisible because it's so expected. Then, when you criticize European cinema, the ears crick up and they think you're "anti-European" because you're in the clique of 'movie intelligentsia' but not supporting the movies the 'intelligentsia' supports.

I found it quite refreshing when I read the book and all those 'art' films I had to study in university were being attacked by someone who knew what they were talking about. Same with J'ACCUSE CITIZEN KANE. Seemed very even-handed, and cutting through the bullshit of the politics.
