Re: Which "good" filmmakers have been ignored?
Gentlemen, I appreciate your articulate responses and your thoughtful rebuttals.
Someone has compared The Asphalt Jungle to the films of Ed Wood.
Here is my thought on the comparison.
Ed Wood has no vocabulary and can't pass a spelling test.
The Asphalt Jungle is the spelling test.
There's no comparison. Anyone who thinks an Ed Wood film is on an equal footing with The Asphalt Jungle can't be reasoned with.
