Snak Eyes

A recent blog post by my favorite emerging NYC sketch comedy group, Elephant Larry, inspired this bit of nostalgia.

Back in the summer of 1998, I was up in Boston, visiting a bunch of college friends. One day, I met up with one of my closest friends, Chambo, and attempted to catch a Sox game at Fenway. We couldn't get tickets and wound up taking the D Line back to Reservoir station, where The Circle Cinema was showing five feature films. Two of them caught our eye:

I deduced that Saving Private Yan was also a war epic, but one that chronicled the Sino-Japanese War; and that Snak Eyes was about a blind man who balled up prosthetics using spongy yellow cake baked at a Hostess factory.
