Paper Moon

Rating: Dr. Pepper.

Amazing film. The influence on the modern quirky American indie comedic drama is obvious, though none I’ve seen have anything on this. Only the second film I’ve seen with Ryan O’Neal (the other being Barry Lyndon), I am impressed with his acting and excited to find more films with him. And his real-life daughter Tatum is a wonderful compliment to him. Not quite sure what to make of the episode with the superficial sex worker and her essential slave, but the liquor stealing episode is unforgettable. Couldn’t ask for a more perfect ending.
