The wrath of the Christian
If you're interested in movies and you haven't come across the pretty astonishing clip of Christian Bale's on-set Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, rant, then you've been in a cave. Bale loses his temper when DP Bruce Hurlbut walks into his eye-line during a take. Professionalism falls apart when director McG pussies out and refuses to take control of the situation. Bale's known for his immersion in roles, so his fury, while over the top, is somewhat understandable. It wont hurt Bale's career at all. However, McG's lack of anything resembling a backbone does cause concern. Jesus man, control your set.
