Whether they are behind the camera or in front of it, this is the place to discuss all filmmakers regardless of their role in the filmmaking process.

Along with Hunter Thompson, and maybe Norman Mailer, he did more to change/enliven American journalism in the last half-century. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test and The Right Stuff are glorious reads, great books. The Bonfire of the Vanities was a compulsive page-turner, but its societal view curdled by the end. And A Man in Full was way over-written, though not without its high points. I never read the later stuff.

Let's say there are few writers with whom I had such political differences that I enjoyed reading so much. A salute.
