Julien Donkey-Boy

Synopsis: "O, mio babbino caro" plays as a woman skates gracefully. In contrast, little is graceful and daddy is not dear in Julien's world. His father listens to blues wearing a gas mask; dad prods, lectures, and derides Julien as well as Julien's brother and pregnant sister, while grandma attends to her dog. Julien is different, schizophrenic. He wears gold teeth. He bowls, sings, worships, and chats with a group of young adults with disabilities. His sister's child is probably his own. He talks on the phone, imagining it's his mother, who died in childbirth years before. He may be a murderer of children. From his point of view (perhaps), the film follows this odd family for a few weeks.

who's been involved in campaigns

back in Europe, and then

the conquest of Mexico,

conquest of Peru.

He was white-haired,

and in all this fighting,

he was on one side,

I think sticking

to Pizzaro's side,

and all of a sudden he rides

into an ambush of his enemies,

and he rides on his horse and

they point their muskets at him

and they were just about

to shoot him...

and he knows he's gonna be dead

in a minute...

and he just defiantly

sings a song against them.

And what he sings is,

"Little mother, two by two,

wafts the wind on my hair."

I truly like that.

- What are they doing?

- I don't know.

Come here. Come here.

See, from here

I can see all the way across

the whole New York City,

almost across to Los Angeles.

It's a big town, baby!

I can see practically from here

to the other side of America.

I can see right over

to the west coast.

I can see right over from

the east coast to the west coast.

Oh, man! Thanks, man,

for telling me.

There's no paper

in this thing.

No, you've got paper.

It's in the plastic bottom.

It's full.

It's full.

- That sounded like it's moving.

- I'm trying to make it move.

I think we need that guy

from the office.

You'd better wash your hands.

You'd better be

wearing shoes.

I'm wearing shoes,

let me tell you.

You can't wear these

in here.

- What size?

- Huh?

- What size?

- Uh, seven.

It's a heavy one.

Can you hold it?

You've got a heavy one.

This one's lighter.

You got it!

You got it!

Get back from the line.

Back from the line, man.

You cheated.

You cheated already!

Behind the line.

- Go for it.

- Can I have some respect, my man?

Yeah! Yeah!

That's it.

Good boy.

Don't scream.

I don't want you to scream.

This is it.

Come on, keep still.

Don't shift around.

Come on.
