I think the name of the critical analysis you espouse was "Dialectical Materialism" which called forth a dialect so obscure, full of its own definitions that it obfuscated rather than enlightened. Whether or not your argument holds water that BD was popular among certain classes does not call forth why you are so interested in this thread. By not identifying yourself you are more of a lightweight troll than a contributor.

It is just such trendy (or in this case defunct) analyses that bedevilled BD and made him such a hard press interview. I enjoyed the scenes where he was obviously trying not to be pigeon-holed by the press, including avoiding saying he was trying to avoid being pigeon holed, because THAT would have been a pigeon hole.

Guest, you would have fitted right in with the press of the time, even if you felt really cool that you were fronting the "Daily Worker".

So you obviously hold it against BD that he did not then nor does he now espouse those particular false ideals of class warfare that you embrace.

As for being involved in a recent commercial with some good lookin' women, it's his own affair and doesn't call into question anything in the Scorsese documentary.
