If they were playing that I just might have convinced myself to make the trip from San Diego to Berkley. Words can't express how much I love that movie.

Nothing to write home about, and frankly not a great interview, but I didn't have to jump through any hoops to get there so it was definitely worth the ticket. Cool to see him in person. All hail the lady who acted as interpreter. She was the star of the show.
