"Finding Fellini"

Neal has found his 'blogger's voice' in "Finding Fellini" (link at right). He does some wonderful name dropping and writes honestly about his struggle to be a true artist. More, he writes incisively and passionately about film directing and acting, the later being my particular interest. In particular, I appreciate Neal's no-bullshit, take-no-prisoners, uncompromising assessments of what makes good acting. He's particularly adept at separating the qualities that actors tend to THINK makes them good from what really does. For instance, check out his post "Why Actors Shouldn't Read Books on Acting," and his later follow up on the misuses of Uta.
