People talk way too low[underact],especially in movies.Like the dialogue is incidental.Years ago I bought into the meme that Death of a Salesman was a great play. Now I don't quite get it.Lomam goes crazy because he is not as successful as he wanted to be? He's resentful that his sons don't honor him enough and goes crazy over it? Another play that I now also see as overrated pap is Streetcar Named Desire. What was her problem? That her lover turned out to be gay? That she was a nymphomania? Another play that now seems contrived and out of synch with human psychology-in this case women.Now Becket I get.His plays stands the test of time.

Nothing worse than listening to actors and directors talk about acting and directing! Thank God there's a good host to save this segment!!!
