Thanks, Alison. Yeah, like Fernando said!! I like Fredric March when he kids his strait-laced core.

March does so many comic things in BYOOL, but they all have an edge, a dark one at that. Maybe my favorite moment happens with a bromo he is pouring back and forth between two glasses(for the hangover he has inflicted upon himself), and he ends up trying to drink out of the empty glass. This is all done while the meat of the scene is going on, and I literally never noticed it until last time I watched the film. Something different always pops up in this movie that I never noticed before, it's so rich in detail.

Yes....and then he burps (!) in what I believe might be an improvised moment courtesy of his digestive tract.

I only discovered BYOOL last year, I love it, I'm going to have to watch it again soon, 6 brilliant performances from the main characters and so layered.
