Surely, there needs to be a distinction between Welles himself and an
actor (Vincent D'Onofrio) playing Welles in an ideological perspective in
a film where very little discrimination is made between a director who
undoubtedly made bad films and one with talent who was ruined by the
system in Hollywood.
In this sense ED WOOD is an ideal conservative postmodernist film, a
drooling homage by a director who sees little difference between Welles
and Wood - a real questionable equivalence.
