Moriarty, while explaining why he enjoyed George Clooney's new film Leatherheads, earns my respect (profanely) with this paragraph:
Clooney is in a position where he can get a film made as a director simply by agreeing to star in it. So he can get some real gambles bankrolled. And here, it feels like he finally made his very own Hudson Hawk.

And I don’t mean that as a slam. Seriously. I’m one of the people who likes Hudson Hawk. I think it’s a very compromised and half-finished film, but there’s stuff in that movie that makes me cackle. I like it because it appears that Bruce Willis lost his motherfucking mind and somehow got Tri-Star to pay him a shitload of money to have his nervous breakdown in Italy while things blow up. I like it because I can’t imagine how it got made.
As a proud owner of the Hudson Hawk soundtrack (including Bruce Willis and Danny Aiello singing "Swingin' On a Star" and "Side By Side" plus some of Michael Kamen's most wonderfully deranged and sometimes very pretty scoring), I smile.
