It stars a young Brad Dourif but it also features Stanton as a hustling preacher. Ebert commented
"no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad". Ebert later conceded that this rule was broken by 1989's Dream a Little Dream (Stanton) and 1999's Wild Wild West (Walsh)
WISE BLOOD By Vincent Canby Published: September 29, 1979 Wise Blood, based on Flannery O'Connor's 1952 novel about an inside-out religious fanatic of the rural South, is one of John Huston's most original, most stunning movies. It is so eccentric, so funny, so surprising, and so haunting that it is difficult to believe it is not the first film of some enfant terrible instead of the thirty-third feature by a man who is now in his seventies and whose career has had more highs and lows than a decade of weather maps.
Mr. Huston's affection for misfits has never been more profoundly expressed than in this uproarious tale about Hazel Motes, a young Army veteran who returns home from the wars—one assumes Vietnam—obsessed with the idea of founding a Church of Christ without Christ. Hazel Motes is no Elmer Gantry and Wise Blood is no exposé of well-paying religious fakery, although it is about salvation.
BT: I guess I came to the wrong place for those...

Cop: I asked a Chinese girl for her number. She said, "Sex! Sex! Sex! Free sex tonight!" I said, "Wow!" Then her friend said, "She means 666-3629."

Zombie: So did you get the free sex?

Ronhel: We all want to know??

Cop: There is no such thing as free sex.

sj: Not true for all men, such as the actor who plays Thor (Hemsworth?). Last time I went to a movie, the Thor trailer was playing and the girls sitting one row over were having a conversation about him.

Ronhel: They talked about him so that was free sex? Damn I'm missing something here.

sj: Sure, they talked about how sexy they think he is - about his arms, etc. Seems to common regarding famous Actors, singers, sports pros, etc. Don't think good looks are required tho - they seem to throw themselves at men who they perceive as alpha males.

sj: Ironically, Hemsworth (or his character) talks about this topic (women throwing themselves at him) in one of the movies (Rush) he starred in.

Cop: Harvey Weinstein is currently paying for all that supposedly free sex he got in the '90s. Spacey's too. Like I said, no such thing as free sex.

sj: Certainly, if a man messes around too much with many women and especially if he abuses his position, it'll probably come back to bite him. I never meant to say or imply that there are some men who can do anything they want.
