If North Korea cooperated and shot their new intercontinental ballistic missile, the Hwasong-14, at the United States with adequate warning so that we could prepare, and if the warhead looked pretty much like we expect it to look, and if they only shot one, and if they did not try to spoof the defense with decoys that looked like the warhead, or block the defense with low-power jammers, or hide the warhead in a cloud of chaff, or blind the defense by attacking the vulnerable radars, then, maybe this is true. The United States might have a 50-50 chance of hitting such a missile. If we had time to fire four or five interceptors, then the odds could go up.
Long before he even approached the elusive Moby Dick of his film career, Terry Gilliam was a living embodiment of Cervantes’ Don Quixote. Tilting at ultra-expensive windmills the likes of Brazil and Baron Munchausen , Gilliam eventually met a giant he couldn’t topple in The Man Who Killed Don Quixote . With Johnny Depp playing a moderner wandering around in Quixote’s Spain, the film was a much awaited dream, that for film fans, one day failed to materialize. The truth behind the production, and the near biblical disasters it faced, was a much more real and viscerally painful affair for the affable for seemingly fated Gilliam. Sure, Gilliam’s still out there occassionally tipping his sword to the sky and promising us a real Quixote film, but Lost in La Mancha may in fact be a far greater movie than the one we would have gotten. With an sad and undeterred look at a whimsical director under fire, Lost in La Mancha shows us a wizard nobly moving forward when he’s been stripped of his enchantment. – Nathan B.
