(3/3) This is a compilation of all of the Lily Tomlin/Tom Waits scenes from 1993 Robert Altman film Shortcuts. A friend made me watch this film about six years ago because she's a Robert Downey Jr. fan, but the only storyline that had any effect on me was this one. I particularly found the scene where Earl comes into the diner distraught after spending the night without his wife to be very moving. I think that Earl and Doreen have the most satisfying ending—they're still flawed, but devoted to each other. Also, this is the movie that made me a Tom Waits fan! After I fell in love with his music, I re-watched this film and choked up when they say to each other, "'Til the wheels come off," just like in Waits's ballad "Picture in a Frame" from his Mule Variations album.

I don't own the rights to this—it's just my attempt at using movie-editing software, so I hope I don't offend anyone.
