Ah, yes....La Donna Nikitino.

Didn't know you could kill with fusilli, but I knew it was dangerous (Seinfeld).

That was No Way Out I believe. No point. Not in the title nor in my clarification.

Thanks Chance...    I guess it was the "no" that they had in common...  Smiley

Well, I'm settling in to catching up with an old classic of the "No Way Out" era, none other than the Peter Weller/Sam Elliott "buddy cop" (defense attorney/ex-cop drunk) movie "Shakedown,"

Have not seen Shakedown -- I'll have to check it out.  I do like Peter Weller

Or perhaps the commonality of the meanings of the phrases themselves. A point of no return is synonymous with no way out.

Actually, it's not.

A point of no return is a threshold that, when you pass it, you can't go back.  You can keep going forward, perhaps.

No way out implies a trap, i.e. you're surrounded, boxed in, etc.

Kinda like the difference 'tween a caged hamster and a cliff hanging lemming?

I meant Sebastian Koch, as casting him in a James Bond movie would be very USAmerican.Mühe and Martina were also excellent.

I think European actors are super.They make me believe they are the character they are playing.Sometimes I can´t tell is them during the first minutes of a film.They change completely and I´m so grateful for lined faces and botox free lips.

Then they go to Hollywood and...see what happened to Hopkins.I saw Fracture and there was our old friend Hannibal Lecter with all his *meaningful glances*.Look at Antonio Banderas with Almodovar and then in his last films pouting like Brigitte Bardot.

SUPER CINEMAS: I am sure that in my country they are mostly money laundering setups.

Condolences. 

After you start to regain your equilibrium, read some 1990s style Gunther Grass who will continue to describe through novel conversations, while walking with a friend from the other side, what it was like.
