Lovable curmudgeon, brilliant writer
29 June 2018 | by jellopukeSee all my reviews

You get a bit of everything here; looks at cranky Harlan, rants, and book excerpts. While it'd be nice to have some more in depth analysis of his work, his personality is just so big that it overpowers it all. Super entertaining movie.
