Five Easy Pieces?
One evening at our house with friends, someone suggested an impromptu poetry reading. The idea was to pass around a copy of Whitman and Yeats, each to open a page at random and read. At Marilyn’s turn, she opened the Yeats, and the poem could only have been presented to her, again, by fate. It was “Never Give All the Heart.” (“For everything that’s lovely is/But a brief, dreamy, kind delight./O never give the heart outright…”) She read the title, paused, and began the poem. She read it slowly, discovering it, letting the lines strike her, surprised, hanging on, winning by absolute simplicity and truth. When she finished, there was a hush. She stared into space.

The director has released a musical album, exhibited his artwork, designed a nightclub and worked tirelessly for T.M. What he has not been doing is making movies.
