I've been busy most of today, so I'm just now getting to this story, but it's had me smiling since I first saw it this morning.
I am a big fan of Keith Gordon's work as a filmmaker, but I often feel like that's a lonely position to take. He hasn't directed a ton of films, and the ones he's made were never really box-office hits or cultural sensations.
He's probably better known from his days as an actor in films like "Christine" or "Back To School" or "Dressed To Kill," where he was always incredibly effective at combining a keen intelligence with a withering sense of social grace. Watch the way he changes from pre-car Arnie to post-car Arnie sometime in "Christine," and you'll appreciate just how good Gordon could be at times.
