    he makes his truth look as good as he wants it to look.  He actually had sit-down interviews with Roger Smith of GM, but it was a better truth for him to present this quixotic effort to talk to Smith in "Roger & Me."  He also allegedly doesn't treat his own staff well.  

    I always go back to the dearly departed Might Magazine article where they had a guy in a gorilla suit try to get an interview with Moore.  It was both very funny and somewhat revealing.  You can pretty much not find a trace of it on the Web unless you buy that book at the link.

    •  I have often thought of this. More than anything (0+ / 0-)

      rogue film people admire orginality over everything and out of the box thinking.  This guy was essentially does what MM does and did first, just a different look, and he expected the same result.  Somehow that does not play well.

      Some things only have one act.

      Steven Spielberg funded the animated An American Tale because the guy who wrote the scrip and developed the characterizations made all the characters into really large hand puppets.  He then put them in a red flyer wagon and roamed Universal's parking lot talking to people with the characters.

      Spielberg had him sent up and said all right you have a ten minute pitch.  This was talked about but no one else would get pitch time making puppets.
