SWINTON COMES OUT SWINGING
The White Witch speaks!

Wow, what a letter. Take the time to read the whole thing. It’ll make your head spin.

And speaking of dangerous fantasy-land personalities…

    Swinton’s discourse is pretty amazing stuff. Her view seems to be that there is no reality except the individual experiences we gain from engaging with cinema. What a narcissistic view of life that is!
