Ari: We all loved you in the Station Agent Peter.

Peter: I fucking hope so, that’s why I signed up with you people.

Ari: Well if we could have signed up earlier we could have slipped you into Bad Santa.

Peter: Actually, I passed on that, though thank you.

Ari: You’re one of the biggest actors in this town Peter.

Peter: What is that a play on words or something dickhead? I tolerate agents, I don’t like them.

I'm by no means an emotional guy, and don't get upset/cry easily, but watching this almost brought me to tears. It's one of the most riveting, psychologically horrifying movies I've watched. I suppose it's the combination of the excellent soundtrack with the surrealism of the animation - and then slowly realizing that all the stories are real, or at least based on reality as best the soldiers can retell it.

Link to the Sony Retail page. It's the only 'legit' source I could find to purchase the film, but it's also on Amazon as well as other sources.
