“You don’t get to rewrite what I write.”
My respect just skyrocketed for Warren Beatty. The guy wrote, produced, directed, and starred in a 3-hour epic on Communism during one of the most paranoid, right-wing eras of American history. Boss shit, with supporting turns from Gene Hackman, Jack Nicholson, and Vittorio Storaro’s roaming camera. Diane Keaton as Louise Bryant is a dream — Annie Hall eat your heart out. Masterpiece.
