"We're The Stains and we don't put out!"

Theory:

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains is kind of like a punk rock version of All About Eve. And not just for the way a young woman climbs her way to the top with her guile and charm leaving a trail of trampled people in her wake in each film. The endings have a similar resonance with Eve ending up trapped in the world she so desperately sought to gain access too and Corinne and The Stains becoming the very thing they set out to be the antithesis of.





Yes? No? Thoughts?

Yes, that is EXACTLY the story--except when I watch LAGTFS, I was always waiting/hoping to see Ray Winstone get fully naked for my personal gratification. Which is not exactly the same feeling I get when watching Bette do her "bumpy night" schtick.

Um, yeah. He fully needed to get naked! I mean, we see a shocking amount of skin on young Diane Lane, why not more from him?
