: I did not think you were being presumptuous at all. Many people have wondered about the same thing. But it's so easy to assume we know the whole story with these celebrities, and really, we have no idea what's going on. Again, "I am defending him because I've become infatuated with him!!" Not really, but it does make me want to give him the benefit of the doubt.
You say you've become infatuated with DDL--that's the Mohican magic......I've seen 3 of his movies other than LOTM: "My Left Foot"......"In the Name of the Father"......"Age of Innocence." Of the 4, I'd rate them: l) LOTM 2) In the Name...3)draw between Left Foot & Age of Innocence. Here's a thought......shouldn't we give some of the adulation to Michael Mann....he created the stirring dialogue, found the mesmerizing music, approved of the actors chosen, did the editing that gave the movie its dramatic timing, etc. Checked out his latest movie & discovered it stars Robert DeNiro & the actor who played "Serpico"--can't even remember his name........two of my least favorite cinema stars......their movies are often much too violent, stark, & the language usually insults your intelligence:o). I'll check it out anyway just to compare it with LOTM......take care, ann
