Name: Ben Winfield Source: unca20100401.htm It's interesting how I explicitly said in my previous post that I WASN'T asking for actors in movies to be profoundly ugly, and yet Jan proceeds to criticize me on those grounds anyway. But whatever. It's obvious I've stepped on some kind of SHERLOCK HOLM...

Name: Ben Winfield Source: unca20100401.htm DTS, That was very clever. You know, how you managed to spin the details around so I would be the one at fault, and not the film? But what's REALLY making me struggle to maintain a tone of civility in this post is your vaguely smug assumption that I've ei...

ADAM-TROY,

Ellison & Herzog, sitting in a tree...

Name: Ben Winfield Source: unca20100401.htm Harlan, you and Werner have GOT to collaborate on something in the near future, be it an adaptation of one of your short stories, or an original screenplay you wrote that he could direct.

ALEX,

"How Interesting: A Tiny Man" might not be Harlan's all-time best, but hey, Akira Kurosawa didn't make RAN until he was seventy-five. Chances are Harlan's magnum opus is still ahead of him.
