Apologies for the "concussive" nature of my statement,

and thank you for your gentle response. I learned a new word today. :o) Anyway, I need to remember that Iím discussing someoneís livelihood here. Bad GalTX!

It was interesting to learn of the technique you use to gauge the length of a film. Itís been probably three decades since I saw the animated Hobbit, but what you write about its lack of texture and drama rings true. I thought I remembered they had omitted Beorn, and heís such a wonderful, fantastic character. Iím even more comfortable with the two-movie concept than I was before.

Well, I will hope that my use of the words ďgrotesque and fatalisticĒ are indeed overstatement. I do think, though, that after a certain age (say, twenty) peopleís world view tends to crystallize and inform what they do and create. I do see certain fundamental elements in PJís work (some good, some less good), and I think itís normal for viewers/readers/listeners to find common elements and a viewpoint in an artistís work. We build abstractions about the concept we have of an artist in our own minds, to get a handle on them. (All we have are words to convey the abstraction, and I didnít want to go into an in-depth analysis of your work so I chose a couple of adjectives.) I do have certain expectations, but Iíll go see the film and try to keep an open mind. Now youíve made me curious.

But you canít get me to watch A Christmas Story again. ;o)
