all seen it before, its near the end of the movie and the "bad
guys" are about to kill the "good guys" but before
they do it they gotta explain their evil master plan in full detail
to these "heroes" who they are about to kill. This cinematic
tool is a Hollywood staple that is used to compensate for the difficulty
of tying together all the irrelevant scenes and subplots that do
nothing more than make a Hollywood movie a..a.. "Hollywood
movie." This 30 second scene is the only reason I'm recommending
this movie at all. You hafta wade through two hours of silliness
to get to this scene, so only watch it if you got the time
The Long Kiss Goodnight stars Gina Davis as house wife "Samantha Caine" who
suffers from amnesia and has a memory that only goes back 8 years ago. She has
retain "Mitch Hennessy" Samuel L. Jackson as the cheap detective/con
man to find out who she was in her former life before the amnesia. It turns out
that Samantha Caine was/is (you never retire from the agency) a trained assassin
for the CIA named "Charley Baltimore" who lost her memory when she
fell off a cliff (yeah right...) during a botched CIA attempt on her life. Why
the CIA was trying to bump her off, Im not sure. But she was assumed to be dead
and that was that.
Fast forward 8 years later and she gets spotted by the CIA and is once again
targeted for "liquidation." The rest of the movie is Gina Davis running
from CIA hit men while being driven around by a wise cracking Samuel Jackson.
Its basically a "Driving Miss Karate choppin, pistol packin Daisy." A
point that is not lost on Samuel L. Jackson who makes a reference to this annoying
turn of events. Numerous shoot outs and fist fights later they both get captured
by the CIA and you finally are told what's really going on.
Davis and Jackson are on their knees in a meat freezer about to be killed. The
CIA have rigged a tanker truck full of chemicals to explode in the center of
town. In walks the White male director of the CIA, and he says this:
"Congress blinded us over seas, I was forced to turn to any eyes and ears
I could find even if that meant recruiting the quote unquote bad guys"
GINA DAVIS: " Budget cuts? is that what this is about? operation honeymoon...fuck
me!, you're running a fund raiser"
SAM JACKSON: Fund raiser? (surprised)
CIA DIRECTOR: "1993, World Trade Center bombing, remember? During the trial
one of the bombers claimed the CIA had advanced knowledge; (laughing) the diplomat
who issued the terrorists visa was CIA, its not unthinkable they paved the way
for the bombing, purely to justify a budget increase."
SAM JACKSON: (surprised) "You're tellin me that you're gonna fake some terrorist
thing just to scare some money outta congress?"
CIA DIRECTOR: "Well unfortunately Mr. Hennessy I have no idea how to fake
killing 4000 people, so we're just going to hafta do it for real. Oh, blame it
on the Muslims naturally, then I'll get my funding"
During this entire scene there is a "frozen Muslim" (non white person)
wrapped in plastic hanging on a meat hook who is remove and taken out to serve
as one of the "terrorist" who dies in the blast.
Keep in mind that this movie was made in 1996. After seeing this last scene I
fully understood why the movie contained so many ridiculous unbelievable scenes.
You are being carefully groomed to disbelieve the only scene in the entire movie
that is believable. Are the White Supremacists so secure in their ability to
deceive that they can actually broadcast their future plans? Racism is the most
powerful political force in the universe. All persons in the known universe are
either practicing it or reacting to the practice of it. If you're like me (non
white) you are reacting to it. The White people who choose to practice White
Supremacy are collectively the smartest most powerful people in the universe
and they GET THINGS DONE! Even if it means making it look like someone else did
Stranger things have happened before. The Nazi's burned down the Riechstag and
blamed the communist and you believed that. Susan Smith drowned her children
and blamed a nigger and you believed that. The World Trade Center is destroyed,
4000 people are dead are you are being encouraged to blame the "Muslims."
Do you believe that?
I was surprised when the Twin Towers were hit, but not as surprised as a "highjacker" who
is unaware he is on a "suicide mission." They may have been as surprised
as you were. Or they may have never realized what "hit them."
