    The director's other work referenced in the OP's post, Man on Wire, is well worth watching. It's a BW film about the French bloke who walked a high-wire between WTC1 and 2.

    The upside of that is when the children of hippies rebel against their parents, they do so by becoming normal people.

    People just can't understand that chimps aren't little fuzzy people. A girl at my office used to dream about getting a chimp and having matching outfits. She truly was saving her cash to buy one. No matter what I told her, she wouldn't listen. I even gave her info from the curator of primates at the STL Zoo, warning people to NEVER get primates as pets.

    I can't tell you how many people try to give out of control exotic animals to zoos when they can no longer handle them. I chimp sat a baby chimp at the zoo whose mother had been physically abusive to him. Little Hugo (now big Huge-O, the dominant chimp) was adorable but terrified of everything.

    The zookeepers had selected volunteers come to the zoo after hours and keep him company, change his diapers, keep him from getting too lonely. The first time he was switched from the children's zoo to underneath the Jungle of the Apes, he was terrified of the noises from the gorillas.

    By the time he was one year old, they pulled us from the project. I tried to pick him up one evening and he bared his teeth at me. That was my last time with baby Hugo.

    "Mom and dad were hippies. Don't get me wrong, I love them, but I just wanted some normalcy in my life after all of the years of communes and VW microbuses. Nothing beats a bespoke suit, a multi-million dollar townhouse and a BMW in the garage. Now, I hate to cut this short, but I'm having dinner with a supermodel and I don't want to keep Giselle waiting. Ciao."

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
