More on RAW movie recommendations

Lillian Gish in the movie 'Intollerance'

If you enjoyed Wednesday's post about Robert Anton Wilson's movie recommendations, here are a couple of resources to consider.

Spookah noted in the comments that he's put together a website listing movies that RAW mentioned in his books and elsewhere. He's been updating it as he gets more information.

And here's a resource Spookah cites: RAW's 1998 list of his 100 favorite American movies, which I put up as a blog post in 2014.

I'm glad to see Mel Brooks on his list. It's a litmus test for me: I know we're gonna get along if you are a nut for silly/stupid comedy.

In fact, in some stoned state way back, I came up with a hypothesis involving Brooks:

Right now, both Dick Cheney and Mel Brooks are alive and we are in a state of heaven and hell on earth. Cheney is the closest embodiment of evil and Brooks is the closest embodiment of God (at least, the God I want to be real and in charge of reality). If Cheney dies first, then we will enter a golden age of global peace and humor. If Mel dies first, we are left with more evil in the world than good, thus Hell on earth.
