I can attest to the fact that Tom is an awesome guy to speak with. He is very knowledgable on many subjects, and always has something to add to a conversation. Personally, I also appreciated the fact that when Scientology did become the topic at hand, he handled it very casually. He answered the basic questions, suggested some reading, and generally didn't try to shove anything down anyone's throat 'since it came up'. I also enjoyed that he will recommend individual movies he's done, and not give the old line that they are 'all good in their own ways'.
Well - I'm having a hard time beliveing that he's a intellectual giant. I saw his appearance on "Parkinson" on BBC and he came across as likeable and charasmatic but rather a simple mind. He was not drilled regarding the Scientology thing but just the fact that he is involved casts him in a dubious light. Read up on Scientology on the net and you see what I mean. A good starting point is The Fishman Affidavit
- it is a very interesting reading. Parkinson has no commercial agenda and will allow his visitors to dig their own grave if they want to and shine if they can. B
