Tom Waits: a conversation with himself – Features, Music – The Independent

“Rod Steiger in The Pawnbroker explaining to the Puerto Rican all about gold. Brando in The Godfather dying in the tomatoes with scary orange teeth. Lee Marvin in Emperor of the North riding under the boxcar, Borgnine bouncing steel off his ass. Dennis Weaver at the motel, saying, “I am just the night man,” holding on to a small tree in Touch of Evil. The hanging in The Ox-Bow Incident. The speech by Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner as he’s dying. Anthony Quinn dancing on the beach in Zorba. Nicholson in The Witches of Eastwick covered in feathers in the church as the ladies stick needles in the voodoo doll. When Mel Gibson’s blue healer gets shot with an arrow in Mad Max 2: Road Warrior. When Rachel in The Exorcist says, “Could you help an old altar-boy, father?” The blind guy in the tavern in Treasure Island. Frankenstein’s monster after he strangles the young girl by the river.”
