I like the game where, every time someone says,"drink", you do. Times two. Just because.

Years ago in a thrift store I scored a documentary about George Jones called "Same Ol' Me." I find it nearly impossible to watch this video without a constant flow of whiskey and waters chased down with ice cold beer.

Sam Peckinpah's "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid". Non-stop consumption of whiskey. Always a bottle available in every practically every scene. When James Coburn returns home to visit his wife, (in their prim and proper modest abode), after the Kid has shot two of his deputies and fled Lincoln, there is no whiskey in sight. An argument ensues, he tears perfectly good curtains off of the wall and leaves, claiming he has to go and arrest a drunk. (Best joke in the movie: Near the end, Coburn meets up with a carpenter, played by Peckinpah himself, offers him a drink from a flask and Mad Sam declines it. Legend, right or wrong, has stated Peckinpah was intoxicated during the entire production. No matter: the film stands as an American western masterpiece, an aching dispatch on regret and conformity as the west was consumed by political and commercial interests. No wonder everyone was drinking without restraint!
Peckinpah's "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" is even harsher: a tequila fever dream as Warren Oates chugs cheap Pepe Lopez while tooling around Mexico with a severed head. My favorite drinking movie of all time.

A quote from John Ford's "My Darling Clementine":
Wyatt Earp (Henry Fonda): Ever been in love, Mac?
Mac: No, I've been a bartender all my life.

Just saw the movie Young Adult starring Charlize Theron while on the plane home. It's hilarious in a very very dark way.

Only problem with this scene is the dude tries to pull the wool over your eyes that his bourbon will continue ageing even though it's in a glass bottle, but that's probably a lack of knowledge on the writers part.

I watched the rum diary the other day and quite enjoyed it. Wouldn't call it great though
