Tom Cruise, Scientologist, superstar, lousy writer
Were he in my writing class, Tom Cruise would earn a "check double-minus" (the current voguish way of grading without numbers) for this Time mag essay about Mission: Impossible III director J.J. Abrams.
I know Cruise is dyslexic, but really, it's no excuse for this level of incoherence: "From the very beginning, there was an insouciance that promised anything was possible. He's a creative juggernaut and someone who recognizes the joy of creating. We had great fun laying waste to the specious barriers and the each-person-does-his-own-job structure of filmmaking."
Insouciance. Juggernaut. Specious.Bad ghostwriter or an errant Thetan?
