We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
One small problem when producing a movie and dealing with foreign languages is whether or not to have the foreign characters actually speak in their native tongue. If you do, it has that ‘air of authenticity’, but you have to deal with distracting subtitles. If you don’t, it just seems kind of fake.
How they crossed that bridge in ‘The Hunt For Red October’ was nicely done.
Along similar lines, the way they showed Antonio Banderas in 'The 13th Warrior' as an Arab traveling with a band of Norsemen and slowly learning their language was also well crafted.
