Michael Winner, who died today, was a successful movie director before he started writing about restaurants for the Sunday Times, where his self-professed ignorance about food never inhibited him from trenchant views.
TONIGHT on Charlie Rose @ 8p & 10p ET, U.S. Representative for Illinois Jan Schakowsky and Dean Baker, co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, discuss the national deficit. Actor Michael Caine talks about his second autobiography, ``The Elephant to Hollywood.’’
I’ll never be able to watch Michael Caine again without thinking of “ The Trip ,” a mockumentary in which British comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon do sidesplitting imitations of various movie legends.
Like a grisly car accident, it’s hard to avoid staring when a great actor gives a lousy performance in a horrible movie. One recent example is Michael Caine in “Harry Brown,” where the two-time Oscar winner impersonates Charles Bronson ’s vigilante from “Death Wish.”
