Whom he sired when he was thirteen ...   

(Eastwood, b. 1930; De Niro, b. 1943)

But Sean Connery played Harrison Ford's father and there wasn't a big difference in ages there.Sean b.1930;Harrison b.1942.Ahh the wonders of cinema. ;)

Uprising ( 2001 ) Great story of the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto during WWII,but went on for far too long.

Get Carter ( 1971 ) Michael Caine out for revenge of his brother's murder.Great movie except for the ending.

It's rare nowadays to ever see a movie after it's initial theatrical run.

This is one thing I've always been curious about.When a film is finished it's run in the cinema,what happens to all the reels of film.Are they destroyed or sent back to the distributor to sit in a warehouse to gather dust.( sorry if this should be in the Q&A or off topic forums).

23692
I just couldn't decide.

So I went with I liked them all. :D

According to Leonard Maltin's movie guide,Danny Glover made his film debut in Escape From Alcatraz.I haven't seen this film for quite a while but don't remember seeing him in it.Was he just an extra in the background or did he have a speaking part? ;)

Is it true that Kubrick used to shoot a lot of takes of scenes? I remember reading something years ago that he shot Scatman Crothers closing a car door about 30 times in a scene from The Shining,but always thought that had to be an exaggeration. ;)

"What were they trying to say?!?" I don't know how to answer a question as general as that when faced with the totality of Kushner's work. Let me respond in kind, I guess: AIDS is bad. Did you get that much?

Unless you want to give me specific scenes, specific dreams, I can't blanketly offer you much more than that.


I'll give you a little bit about the Pacino character in general, maybe that'll ease you into some specific questions? Pacino's character was based on a real person, the infamous Roy Cohn. Cohn was a self-hating Jew and a self-hating homosexual...though that wasn't really known back when he was at the height of his power. In the '50s Cohn was right-hand hammer and legal counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy in his Communist witch-hunting. Before that he had prosecuted Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed for treason. The ghost that visits Cohn at his bedside in "Angels in America" is Ethel Rosenberg (played by Meryl Streep in one of her three roles). She represents all the people he destroyed, literally and emotionally, in his reign of terror. It's a guilt that now, at the end of his life, Kushner supposes would finally be tormenting him. He hopes it would anyway.


So, that's what the Pacino character's dream sequences are about, in part anyway: the guilt of a life spent with absolutely no regard for others finally catching up with him as he dies from AIDS.


That's the most obvious and clear-cut of the visions, if you know even the basic history of who Cohn was (BTW, there's a pretty good made-for-HBO bio-pic about the man called "Citizen Cohn" (1992) starring James Woods as Roy Cohen, Joe Don Baker as Joe McCarthy, Pat Hingle as J. Edgar Hoover and Frederic Forrest as Dashiell Hammett).

Thanks for that,it's a little clearer now.I'll definitely look out for that James Woods movie Citizen Cohn because I didn't know anything about the man before.  :)
