No, I haven't read the essay although I know about it. Is it something I can read online or do I have to buy it? And now I have a great urge to both watch the movie and re-read the book. Jeremy Irons was excellent, I thought.
I can’t find a copy online, but it’s in a collection of his titled The Secret Parts of Fortune: Rosenbaum has weird grudges but he’s an interesting writer. Jeremy Irons is excellent! His commentary is totally worth a listen.
