My dad always said there’s four phases in an actor/director’s life. There’s ‘Mario Who?’ There’s ‘Get me Mario!’ ‘Get me a young Mario,’ and ‘Mario Who?’

When young people see movies like ‘Gandhi ‘or ‘JFK,’ there is an element of romanticization of these powerful people, and young people often feel a huge distance between their own lives and the lives of these social-change heroes. But the Panthers were flawed-up people from the streets, so it’s easier to identify with them.
