Commentary by Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
"Get Shorty" is irresistible. Elmore Leonard's screenplay is a jewel. I can't help watching at least some of this movie when flipping channels and it appears. Thanks for the link.
Texas Leigh,I think that in terms of screenplay, casting, and acting, it is very close to a perfect movie.Michael
I agree...you might also like Guy Ritchie's "Snatch." Dennis Farina is in both movies. I miss Farina. He played the perfect mob guy and died too young. I must correct myself about "Get Shorty": Scott Frank wrote the "Get Shorty" screenplay. Elmore Leonard wrote the novel.
Texas Leigh,I have seen "Snatch" and enjoyed it. You are right about Dennis Farina. He went far too soon.I'm glad you mentioned Scott Frank. I read the Elmore Leonard novel and, as good as it was, the film was better.Michael
Glad you treated yourself to "Snatch." Perhaps you could blog post the trailer for it? Jason Statham is a favorite, but Brad Pitt's gypsy character steals this show.
Texas Leigh,Good idea. I will track that trailer down!Michael
