What struck my in ’94, and hit me again this time, is just how inspiring this movie is. This is as loving a portrait of and individual fighting the Man as any Jack Nicholson picture from the 70s. But here’s what’s amazing: it does not totally reject taking cheap shots at Wood’s lack-of-professionalism and transvestism. It is a funny, moving, exciting and left Ann and I filled with that warm glow only the best of movies leave you with. You don’t have to’ve seen Wood’s pictures to love this movie, but it helps. “Let’s shoot this fucka!”
