If you do not think Harry Dean Stanton is a cinematic treasure, please watch the clip of repo man below and and read the exerpt from Roger Ebert's original review of the film. And if you still don't believe it - there's nothing i can do for you.



"Harry Dean Stanton is one of the treasures of American movies. He has appeared in a lot of films without becoming a big star, but he has that total cynicism that brings jobs like repo into focus."

Is Harvey Dean Stanton the greatest three named cinematic treasure? There's Phil Seymour Hoffman, Billy Bob Thornton, Mark Linn Baker...the competition is fierce.
