I see the Robert Johnson crossroads story. Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus story. The Paganini history.

The principle I see is a demonstration of the advantage to a solid grounding in the basics. This is why true academics who study original source material when possible, and other basic tools of their vocation/avocation, can take comfort in the scene.

The Ralph Macchio character is trained to play classical guitar. The old harmonica player was his guide to the blues, which included life-lessons in the journey which at the climax of the story included the life lesson that at the moment of truth little innocent-looking Ralph lost even the faith of his blues-guide, who turned away from Ralph’s mortal form, as God forsake Christ on the cross.

So Ralphie dug deep for his true refuge.
A large celebration ensued.



Siddhārtha Gautama was a true Renaissance man, long before the Renaissance became a popular thing and so-named, but that just wasn’t enough for him, was it.

Good scenes, gaffo. I took down names, as they say. Jerzy Kosinski created the Chauncy character (Being There). Most of his stories are darkly humorous. Overall, his collection of psychological stories emphasize the triumph of the lone individual over the collective in ways that are strange for a strange world.

Based on historical events. A favourite flick because it doesn’t propagandize right and wrong, good and evil. The viewer must decide. This scene shows the movie pacing that is consistent with setting and time, among other things.
