I want a dog,
To walk in the park
When it gets dark, my dog will bark
At any passers-by
Oh, (oh oh) you can get lonely
I want a dog

The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming (dir. Norman Jewison, 1966)

One of my favourite films when growing up. Alan Arkin is brilliantly funny and on the nose. The trailer is genius too.

Everything passes away, suffering, pain, blood, hunger, pestilence. The sword will pass away too, but the stars will still remain when the shadows of our presence and our deeds have vanished from the earth. There is no man who does not know this. Why then do we not turn our eyes to the stars? Why?
The White Guard by Mikhail Bulgakov
