It’s worth noting that during most of the first 10 years of my life I remember having extreme difficulty understanding narrative logic, and would invariably become extremely confused and irritated during film viewings; as such, much of what tends to remain in memory from these formative screenings are the acts of shocking violence, the glimpses of nudity, and the image of Grace Jones. The more things change the more they stay the same.
