Synopsis - Two mobsters vie for control of New York City in this musical comedy where stylised gangland slayings happen as easy as pie.


Bugsy Malone (1976).

That is a quote from a different film. (Was trying to insert a clip, but YouTube is balky.)

For your viewing pleasure, the abbreviated scene in question:

It's my favorite Bill Murray movie. Very weird, but excellent.

Synopsis:

Following the murder of a prominent leftist, an investigator tries to uncover the truth while government officials attempt to cover up their roles.

One of the shortest movie titles ever, the title also means "he is alive" in an ancient language.

My Number One Movie.

That should be Z. I need to see this again. With Topaz or The Dancer Upstairs for a double feature.
