Film: Six Degrees of Separation/Catcher in the Rye

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I stumbled across this film the other night and even though I missed about the half or third I enjoyed it. From a little research I found that it woas originally a play (same title) written by John Guare. What hooked was Will Smith's "Catcher in Rye" monolouge.

My question is who here knows if what he is saying is factual, based on facts or pure hollywood?

I don't know if all that's true, but I always thought it was interesting that the Arthur H. Bremer, the guy who shot George Wallace, was supposedly motivated to do so by watching A Clockwork Orange. Arthur Bremer was then used as a basis for Travs Bickle in Taxi Driver, which in turn was hugely influential on John Hinckley.
