Tweets of the Day: Mark Harris vs. Richard Brody

Mark Harris, author of “Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollwyood,” started a bit of a contretemps when he tweeted the following earlier today:

Most folks were just dying to know which movie, or movies, he was talking about (I have my own thoughts), but Richard Brody of The New Yorker replied as follows:

Brody, by the way, was the man who liked “Tabu” so much.

More later, as the man said.
