Plot: The first of three parts, we follow Tulse Luper in three distinct episodes: as a child during the first World War, as an explorer in Mormon Utah, and as a writer in Belgium during the rise of fascism. Packed with stylistic flourishes, it's a dense, comic study of 20th century history, revolving around the contents of one man's suitcases.
Movie Quotes: Charley Simms: Hey, I'm Charley.
Taylor Hunter: Taylor.
Charley Simms: You're either a mirage or lost cause I've never seen anyone my age around here.
Taylor Hunter: I'm real.
Charley Simms: How did you get up here? Sorry, none of my business.
Taylor Hunter: All I wanted was to go to the Olympics. Is that so much to ask. I mean I worked my butt off to get those tickets. I should have gone by myself, but no I had to make it a group trip with my sister and friends. And my luck I got stuck with a group that can do absolutely nothing right! My car got stolen, the Caddy got spiked, we flew to the wrong San, I got stuck with a $450 cab ride, we did migrant labour, our steaks got e-lemonated, we got on the wrong bus, we're 120 miles from Vegas. The Olympics are almost over, I thought I lost my sister and thankfully some good news, found my sister!
Charley Simms: Thats the saddest story ever.
Taylor Hunter: No but, its definatly in the Top 10.
