Loony, loony, loony... I think he's made some really well-shot films, but he has NO sense of plot. It's like plot as derived from visual film theory. He talked early on about ultimate filmmaking, like what Hitchcock did, where the plot is almost irrelevant -- just a pure cinematic experience. I've seen that type of thing welldone -- as long as you aren't thinking about the plot in a traditional sense. I am with DePalma. Trying to understand why he's made the choices he has. They seem to exist more because he thought of an interesting sequence to shoot, as opposed to there being any logical reason for it to have occurred the way it did.

Last Crusade and Raiders are two of the best movies of all time.  To claim it was all due to 'the screenplay' is the biggest load of bullshit ever to grace the internet.  

I forgot Spielburg did those movies.  :shock:   Bravo, sir.
