He doesn't have much patience for solemnity of any kind, however, which a film like SUNSHINE is suffused with to a state of overabundance. Films where attractiveness or sexuality is served as a cold dish are not going to work for him--conflict is not a cerebral thing for him, and films that don't provide it with some flesh and blood out front and center are not going to register with him.
And he also has his pets--Tom Cruise being one of them. The review of NEVER GO BACK is carefully worded to sound like analysis, but it's really one big gush of man-crushitude.
I must say that I was very flattered when he complimented me on the writing in the FRENCH HAD A NAME FOR IT wall calendar. Given that he does have a unique touch, it was a uniquely buoying moment in the midst of a whole lot of frazzle, and was much appreciated.
