I really liked Hollywood by Scrymarch (4.00 / 1) #1 Sat Oct 05, 2019 at 06:03:43 AM EST
Including the unhurried tone, and the perfectly retrofitted old movies. The class dynamics. The old Hollywood failures. And the unexpected lack of a torture scene. I even liked the maligned Bruce Lee fight. Note Bruce didn't actually lose.

I seem be the person I know that likes it most, though.

Bruce Lee by TheophileEscargot (4.00 / 1) #2 Sun Oct 06, 2019 at 12:26:25 AM EST
I think if you're enough of a fan to know much about Bruce Lee it's hard to reconcile with the real one. By the time he was in Hollywood he was a cautious, networking profession who'd got his start by training stars before getting on screen himself: boasting and picking on-set fights would have been very out of character. Also they had all the weird yelping noises which were dubbed on later in his Hong Kong movies.
It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?

The line about beating Cassius Clay was very close to the Linda Lee biography quote, though.
