Dr. Hand: No more impersonations?
William Douglas Street: No. Enough is enough.

William Douglas Street: Would I lie?
Dr. Hand: I don't think you're necessarily lying. I don't think you're in control of what you do or say. I think you behave in complimentarity.

Who IS this guy!? -
30 May 2002 | by Rogue-32See all my reviews

  • Not Douglas Street, who is fascinating, no question, but Wendall B. Harris Jr., who wrote, directed and plays Street in this provocative, cutting edge film?! What an incredible talent, extremely reminiscent of another actor of remarkable gifts, Tim Curry - he has that same droll demeanor, which he uses to its utmost effectiveness in this piece. I notice he's been in Road Trip and Out of Sight, both of which I've seen; I will have to check them out again now that I'm a bonafide, genuine admirer. Can't wait to see what he does next.
