Covered fully in The Guardian, who are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

All posts are to be taken as my opinion.

Yeah, that reads... [In reply to] Can't Post

...less like any sort of condemnation, and more just setting the record straight that they were not involved and that the film was not authorized by the estate.

The media will predictably make more out of it.

"The danger with any movie that does as well as this one does is that the amount of money it's making and the number of awards that it's got becomes almost more important than the movie itself in people's minds. I look at that as, in a sense, being very much like the Ring, and its effect on people. You know, you can kind of forget what we were doing, if you get too wrapped up in that." - Viggo Mortensen
