“The Great imitate, the genius steals.”
The ‘Mediocre Actor’ shows up…empty handed.
The ‘Great Actor’ shows up…prepared.
The ‘Genius’ shows up…with a little bag of tricks.
“Rocky One” was the biggest rip off movie I ever saw, but it had ‘Genius’ written all over it. It was designed to excite the audience and that’s what movies are supposed to do.
