Dustin Hoffman Tells A Simple Truth


  1. Yes, excellent. I've always thought Hoffman was very bright.

    But here, he missed half the epiphany.

    It's the same the other way round, also. And no, it's not ever a comedy.

    Unless you subscribe to the not uncommon view that "comedy" is basically pessimistic; and "tragedy" - optimistic. The essence of tragedy is that things might, actually, have turned out differently; better. The essence of comedy is- you are powerless to change anything, and can only laugh.
