Epic Scenes

I adore this film. It is all around great. Really. The writing, acting, music, camera shots, wardrobe....on and on and on. The "drug deal" scene is so powerful my heart races each time i watch it. I know whats going to happen and i am still filled with a paranoid dread of the mounting, unavoidable train wreck that's to come. Also watch Mark Wahlburg's face in the slow close up scene. With a few facial movements he tells you he is remembering how good life used to be (without a silly montage)  and back to the hell he now lives in (6:17 ish).

I will never hear Sister Christian or Jesse's Girl the same way again. Man, this scene is epic.
