I've been wanting to see this for a while now. He was nuts but in a really interesting way, sort of like that guy that built the garbage tower in Los Angeles. I love the episode that Neil Gaiman did in Sandman where Delirium is trapped in a bizarre dream world that only he can get her out of.
Okay I've only watched this halfway through and holy fuck, this is sad. Dude lived his entire life mimicking how others related onto some huge meandering opus but never dared attempt it himself. The fact that it consumed him, never allowing him to ever try to live a normal life interacting with others...what would the term for that be, obsessive mania? Memory repression?
