In 2007, Francis Ford Coppola, one of my all-time favorite filmmakers, returned to the director's chair for the first time in ten years with his adaptation of Mircea Eliade's novella, "Youth Without Youth."

About a week and a half ago, I drove from New Orleans up to Dallas on business regarding a project that I’ve been developing off and on for a couple of years now. I enjoy coming to Dallas because I went to college here and a good number of my old college buddies still remain. Therefore, it’s always fun to get together for drinks, catch up on each other’s lives, and, if the mood catches us right, go streaking across the old campus in our birthday suits. The hardest part of returning to Dallas is ...Read more
