The Genius Who Directed Xanadu…

Lerlines! Here is your first freaky film fact for 2013. The guy behind those super-smart documentaries, Outfoxed, Steal This Movie and Walmart: The High Cost of Low Price is the same guy who directed Xanadu.

This guy. Robert Greenwald.

A complicated man and no one understands him but this woman.

A complicated man and no one understands him but this woman.

This doesn’t freak me out at all. It makes perfect sense to me. He is my hero and not just for making Michael Beck roller-skate without first teaching him to roller-skate.

But also because he proves my theory that intellectual brainy types do not need to constantly prove how damned smart we are. Sometimes we can just sit back and make a movie that makes up for its lack of plot and conflict with an over-abundance of leg warmers…or write a snarky blog about those movies.
