the smiths + film references

bc morrissey had good taste at one point in his life!

(see notes for where the film is referenced. also ongoing because those bastards loved their movie references. i'm also only acknowledging references from before 1995 because i feel like morrissey's solo records from that time are basically smiths-adjacent. feel free to suggest additions!)
