after Mark Allen blabbed about Depp, mike wrote this:

What I'm trying to get at is this:
 
SCREEN-L is read by people who study films.  Inately then this group ought
to be interested in the people who decide what films are going to be made
because this directly affects what films are AVAILABLE for study.  If Depp
is making interesting films and his presence allows a film to be made then
Depp is someone whose choices should be noted.
 
As my friend Peter Sellars has said (many times):  "More important than the
answers is who is framing the questions."
 
Sincerely,
