Pompous Twits in the News

from an interview with Bloomberg.com

"Francis Ford Coppola, who aside from his California winery has also been active in the publishing and hotel business, does not elaborate on future projects or say whether he plans to experiment in other industries. ... “I don’t make a living anymore, I don’t have a job, I’m not trying to have a career, I’m not trying to be rich, I’m just trying to learn,” he says."

    Sounds just like a man called Jack kessler...

  2. Jack even looks a bit like Coppola, save the beard. As for twit-ability, some people have it and some people don't. You don't have to be rich to be a twit (Monty Python's "Upper class twit"), but it helps.

    In fairness there's no comparison here to be found with Jack. Coppola has every right to be a "twit", he's been involved in some of the great films. When you're producing great films like Apocolypse Now, Godfather blah blah, when your daughter also has a credible resume too, and when you helped popularise shows like Koyaanisqaatsi, possibly the greatest piece of cinema ever created, you have every right to be a twit.
    When you live in a dead end town occupying your day by writing terrible sequels to plays (in a vein attempt to look intelligent) and spend your time stealing of students and defending internationally recognised war crimes in Israel, then you have absolutely no right to act the pompous arsehole. Therein lies the difference between Mr. Coppola and Jack. Coppola is a genius and a twit, Jack is just a twat.

    Edit: I should have said directing great films, anyway Jack, you are a tosser.
