The other day i got a message on YouTube from some crazy Mao-obsessed communist who loved the film I’ve got posted up there. He also made some crack about how he was ‘enamoured’ with me. I find this slightly creepy- his favourite videos, for example, are all about bowing down to Stalin etc.
From me being not quite sure whether in the film we were not being quite anti-politics enough, to be interpreted as completely Maoist is quite a jump. I guess he didn’t pick up that we were being entirely scathing of Chairman Mao as well as President Bush and entirely not in either’s favour.
