I watched Fandango today

Admittedly, admittedly, I hadn't seen this film before, and I'm impressed. It seems archtypal, but what else is like it, and what else that's like it is as good? Maybe American Graffitti, but I think I like this more. And Judd Nelson and Kevin Costner are mostly great in it, I want to say a career best for Nelson, though I don't think that's saying much. And director Kevin Reynolds is one of those guys who gets movie music. It's a nice small movie.

Gardner: You ever been in love Phillip?
Phil: I don't know.
Gardner: Of course you know. If you ever thought you loved a woman, you loved her. That's all love is mostly. Thoughts.
