“That’s the fun—and perhaps the sickness—of cinephilia: We can spend our week sampling old Marx brothers comedies, the latest import from Romania, a 12th viewing of the Patrick Swayze vehicle Road House, some disreputable piece of 1970s drive-in sleaze, a Katharine Hepburn/Spencer Tracy comedy, and a shiny new spectacle on IMAX 3-D, and consider it all part of a balanced diet.”

In the scene where Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Calvin Candie smashes the palm of his hand on the dinner table, the actor broke a glass under his hand and really began to bleed. DiCaprio ignored it, stayed in character, and continued with the scene.
