I for one would have to agree, the man is extremely clever, but unfortunately, also quite clueless in many regards. George has really made things difficult for his fans. I really like the guy, so it sucks to hear people rag on him all the time, but the fact is, he deserves most of it (though not the crap from the assholes who are constantly wishing death and misfortune on him).
I am still very fond of his older stuff, and I still see young George as a pretty great film maker, and often lament the fact that that George has been absolutely nowhere to be found for well over twenty years now. Now sure what when wrong. You'd think a guy who had a very small number of hits and a vast pound full of dogs would be a bit more humble about himself and his greatness as a story teller.
