And, now a whole mess of Warren Oates films to order from Netflixs. I feel cheated. I was hoping to learn more about constitutional anarchism. Reticulator — pick up a Kauffman book–any one of ’em. You’ll learn all you need to know. Kudos to Kauffman for giving Oates and the film “The Hired Hand” the credit both deserve. Like a lot of good actors of his generation, his face was a landscape and everyman….quite unlike many of the more shallow and one dimensional pretty-boy actors of this day. He was imperfect and ragged…a physical heir of the Dark and Bloody Ground that spawned him. Yes! I came across that description of his – and my own – politics in Compos’ wonderful book Warren Oates: A Wild Life. Makes me love Warren even more. Comments are closed.
