Did he really just say that?

John Hillcoat, director of the Cormac McCarthy adaptation The Road, was being interviewed by Jim Naughtie on Radio Four's The Today Programme this morning and, after Hillcoat took slight umbrage at his interpretation of McCarthy's novel, Naughtie gave away the ending of book and, therefore, the film on air. Now, I've read McCarthy's masterwork and seen Hillcoat's movie, but if I hadn't... boy, would I be pissed. Jim, you're a bright bloke, but that was one of the most idiotic things I've heard in years. Please, stick to talking politics from now on.
