I think that Mr. Roberson shoots himself in the foot a bit with this
statement, as both NBK and Pulp Fiction are prime examples of films that,
although they are not necessarily *about* Gen-Xers, and definitely
aimed at the Gen-X market.
 
On the subject of Ed Wood, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I have to say that
watching Martin Landau's enthusiastic portrayal of Bela Lugosi was about
the most fun I've had in a movie theater this year.  Right on-target and
absolutely unforgettable.
