Parker Blasts His Film Peers

Veteran British director SIR ALAN PARKER has launched into a scathing attack on his peers.

The LIFE OF DAVID GALE movie maker was speaking at a debate to launch a new Screen School at London's GOLDSMITH COLLEGE when he made the astonishing diatribe about GLADIATOR director SIR RIDLEY SCOTT and SID AND NANCY film-maker ALEX COX.

Parker rants, "Ridley Scott is only interested in one thing, and that's making as much money as possible from the name Ridley Scott.

"Alex Cox has never made a film that anyone wanted to see. Oh yes, he did one."
