Patch Adams
- the wire-hanger abortion of acting, the Srebreniza of cinema, Gary Gilmore reborn as a screenwriter.
i'm convinced the entire movie is a subliminal instruction manual on auto-fellatio. i only watched the last third and managed to witness both the trivialization of child molestation, mental illness & murder AND the shameless plagariazation of Dead Poets Society and To Kill a Mockingbird, complete with the "wise ol' Black matron" character, a courtroom apologia, and central "caterpillar turns to butterfly" metaphor.
but then again, i watched it, if only to marvel at the horror; like watching an autopsy video or reading a book about Hiroshima.
but still, Robin Williams: 1, Me: 0
