The first movie I remember seeing Julianne Moore in she played the character Marlene Craven in The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (1984), and when I raved about her beauty to my sister, she informed me that Ms. Moore had been a face model for a lot longer than she'd been a Hollywood actress.





And the movie by director Ridley Scott that I remember best before Hannibal was Blade Runner (1982), probably the last, great Sci-Fi movie before cartoons took over. Certainly you remember that one, starring Harrison Ford as the ex-cop hunter of the supposedly-permanently-off-Earth, human-appearing killer-robots who have returned to Los Angeles intending to extend their life-spans by fair means or foul?   Based on a story by Philip K.

Ray Liotta, bless his burnished soul, probably had his career revived by the movie Hannibal, because you can hardly watch a recent police or criminal procedural on TV without seeing his evil face and, speaking for myself, wondering: what the heck is this durn guy's name?

I have a law degree (Stanford, 66') but have never practiced. Instead, from 1967 through 1977, I tried to contribute to the revolution in America. As unsuccessful as everyone else over that decade, in 1978 I went to work for the U.S. Forest (more...)
