Well deserved Mr. Druckman.

Watching "The Counselor" yesterday, which is imo an awfully overwritten piece of pseudo-philosophical dramolette I will say: Even Cormac McCarthy could learn a thing or two from you.

Cormac McCarthy's "The Road" is as minimalistic as a 'novel' can be.

You don't judge an orange for not looking like an apple.

You obviously didn`t saw The Counselor.

I like oranges and apples. And I can well tell the degree of ripeness of either fruit.
So yes: i recognize a foul apple when i taste it.

Also I donīt understand why you deliberately would misread my criticizing of a specific work of an artist, as negative attidude to his other works.
