You mentioned in a recent post that you were laughing at Diane Keaton in The Godfather, Part II. By any chance, was it the scene were she admits to having had an abortion?
Yes, it was that bit precisely.
Her overwrought performance in that scene is jarring; I feel as if I’m suddenly watching a John Waters film. I can better picture Divine or Mink Stole screaming, “I had an abortion! An abortion, Michael!”
Hee hee. The wonder of it is that her shrieky performance makes not the slightest dent in that absolute battleship of a great film.
