Steve Lopez Interview on Mediabistro

I had the opportunity to interview Steve Lopez, one of my favorite columnists and the best reason to read the Los Angeles Times. We talked about the movie “The Soloist” which really captured a lot of what made his columns and his book so powerful and moving, but tweaked it to make it more commercial (though less than many “true stories” Hollywood has amde over the years). I can’t help but feel it would have been a much more powerful and moving film if they hadn’t made those changes, though.
