29/07/13 Straight Time (1978)

Dustin Hoffman plays a convict who gets out of prison, makes a complete bollocks of going straight so starts robbing things for money. Based on the writings of Eddie Bunker (read his stuff, it's bloody fantastic!) it has an admirable realism and hasn't dated too badly at all.

Also has Harry Dean Stanton in it who has never, ever been young it would appear.

Pink Fairy Lunatic was a big look back then.

"Hello, Strange Pleasures escort agency? Yes, I'd like to order your dowdiest woman."

"$150 as agreed. I want a full pegging followed by a rusty trombone."
"Si, Senior"

Good ol' Larry. Every morning, regular as clockwork, 7am and he'll be at the wanking fence.
