America’s conscience. Shares a ranch with Jane Fonda. In a wry article for the Daily Telegraph, always remark that though his films are fundamentally flawed and as politically naive as a Channel Five documentary, they are never less than supremely entertaining slices of wham-bang fol-de-rol. Sadly, with Natural Born Killers, he went too far ahead of his time for public taste, and the rest of us are still catching up. Can’t do slapstick.
