Read in February, 2008

Anyone looking for the way screen stories should and need to be told, should look to Barfly. I’ve never seen the movie, (waiting for it to come to DVD), but the screenplay by Hank is just the kind of tale that’s lacking in Hollywood. (Actually, with the advent of digtal, I see a trend toward this kind of cinema, but done independently of course.)No car chases, bullet catches, special effects or bullshit, and frankly no beginning and no ending either. Just a glimpse into a real character’s life. A toast to you, CB.
