  1. Erik F.'s rating of the film Maidstone

    INTERVIEWER: "I would like to feel that you were...not playing with the destiny of a nation just because of your own ego and...your own public image." KINGSLEY (U.S. Presidential Candidate [!]): "I can't give you an answer to that...I am a narcissist by definition...I am fascinated with exposing myself to multitudes...The only thing that gives me pleasure is to be absolutely without shame...I adore shocking people."

  2. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Maidstone

    This is a cultural artifact from the cult of personality known as Norman Mailer. After the T&A casting couch and blah blah blah he gets bonked on the head for his hubris. No one was male-er than Norman, who thought masturbation was for losers, and real men don't dance. Thank god for Rip Torn.

  3. The King of Resolven's rating of the film Maidstone

  4. Matt Kovar's rating of the film Maidstone

    A captivating hodgepodge, a time capsule, and a great film on film-making.

  5. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film Maidstone

    just as poorly assembled as Mailer's other films only this time the movie serves as an insightful sociological study as well. The famous "fight" scene between Mailer & Rip Torn is something to see.
