Again, you're completely ignoring what he did for film technology and the independent film movement. He should be commended and hailed as an icon but instead he's hated for making a couple of bad movies and making some poor choices with his characters. And I love how when he does something good, he's just taking credit for others, but when he does something bad, the blame must fall entirely on him.
