| Michael Caine Could Read a Telephone Book
The movie is mildly amusing. Mr. Caine probably did this for a couple of more reasons than the money. Considering the budget of the movie, he probably was only paid a fraction of what he normally gets these days. I suspect he is not offered a lot of roles these days as Hollywood lacks imagination to write roles for men his age and there is, as has always been, the continued ageism of Hollywood. Mr. Caine may also have been amused by the insight provided by the script into how revolutions are fomented and can even be used to get rid of the top clique in high school. Times change but that part of high school has not. There is ALWAYS a group that revels in making others feel inadequate and there is some voyeur satisfaction in seeing such a group taken down. Regarding my headline, I was expressing my love of Mr. Caine, both for his superb acting and the kind of man he is, intelligent and kind, one who has taken the time all his life to fight racism and other forms of inequality.
