Double Play: James Benning and Richard LinklaterDirected byGabe Klinger
Since I am a fan of mr. Benning, this (different than usual, as he himself is in the rame) rather intimate insight into his personality really made me what to meet him and hug him and tell him that the world is a better place because of his effort to teach people, at least the few that listen, to be patient and look around once in a while. If you don't know who he is watch it anyway. Oh, and there's also Richard.
