So it's my Lustie mate's Portia Da Costa's birthday, and since she has this huge thing for Vincent D'Onofrio I was looking for a nice pic of him for her. And I came across this.

Oo-er. Gosh. I hadn't remembered he was the bad guy in The Cell.

I really should watch that movie again. My memory of it from all those years back is that it was disturbing, repellant, but so imaginative and visually exciting. On the other hand I suspect that nowadays, in the torture-porn age of Hostel etc, it'll just look really tame.

I hate Gorno. I really hate it. I would happily see it banned. And I cannot reconcile this with my belief in artistic freedom of expression.

what is gorno?

Gore "porn" - though no sexual content is implied.
What they used to class as video nasties: Hostel, Saw, etc

I had a terrific arguement with my stepdaughter over who was in 'The Cell'. She said Vince Vaugn. I said nonsense, Vincent D'onfrio. we actually bet money on it, goggled it, and discovered - yeah - both Vincents were in the damn thing. I guess I need to see it again, too...

It's just arrived in spanking slimline DVD form from Amazon. (I'm getting rid of my video tapes slowly!)
