Ultimo tango a Parigi (Last Tango in Paris)

"Go, get the butter".....these words now warrant terror everytime I hear them which is why I think I continue to clog my heart valves by eating margarine rather than deal with the nightmare of an overweight Marlon Brando doing things to me with that yellow dairy stick which would make the Godfather cringe! This French bit of film is perhaps one of the most overrated in the history of cinema though I do give it some credit for making many American viewers spit their popcorn out during that now famous scene. In fairness, film students should see it at least once but most can honestly take a pass on this bloated fantasy.
