Robert Bresson

I don't often recommend movies for other people to watch but a lot of Robert Bresson's catalogue is being made available on DVD and if you are reading this you might be smart enough to appreciate them. I'd suggest watching "Diary of a Country Priest" first. It's based on 1937 novel by Georges Bernanos. Then I'd recommend Bressons's classic "Pickpocket". This DVD is helpful because one of the added features has Paul Schrader break down the cinema of Bresson. It helps explain why watching a Robert Bresson film alters one's consciousness while watching a film starring Paulie Shore does not.

Tghat depends.

I would say Smith in any case, but which model would depend.

If I was packing the revolver around just in case there was a fight, I would say the Smith Model 19 or 66 was the nuts. But if I was already in the fight, I would wish I had carried an M-28, 27, or 627.

Maybe a 586 or 686 is what i really would want, but don't know it.

Exactly like RiverRider says,
If you want to carry a little lighter, than the 19 is the one, for lots of full power loads, go with the 27-28. The 27-28's are better for pistol whipping as well.
