Crowds and heat

Shirl (Leigh Taylor-Young): “We could go to another city.”
Thorn (Charlton Heston): “What for? They’re all like this.”
Dream double bill: Soylent Green (Richard Fleischer, 1973) and Taxi Driver (Martin Scorsese, 1976). The infernal city, crowds and heat.

Iris (Jodie Foster): “I’ll move up to one of them communes in Vermont.”
Travis (Robert De Niro): “I’ve never seen a commune before but I don’t know. I saw some pictures once in a magazine. It didn’t look very clean.”
