Cruising (1980)

I really like the arrangement in Nancy’s bathroom: it’s a small space, so the toiletries are displayed on a metal shelving unit facing a window. The first product I’ve noticed is on the second top shelf (just above Steve’s shoulder): it’s a bottle of the ever-present Old Spice after shave. On the same shelf there’s another interesting product, but more about it later. On the … Continue reading Cruising (1980)

I have found no … Continue reading Late Night Feelings (2019)

Rosie Dickson (Jennifer Aniston) is a former beauty queen who’s still in the beauty pageant circuit: she’s a judge at the annual Miss Teen Bluebonnet Pageant.
