Anthony Hopkins' fan letter to Bryan Cranston after bingeing on Breaking Bad

An excerpt from a letter Anthony Hopkins wrote to Bryan Cranston after binging on all six seasons of Breaking Bad in two weeks:

I know there is so much smoke blowing and sickening bullshit in this business, and I’ve sort of lost belief in anything really.

But this work of yours is spectacular – absolutely stunning. What is extraordinary, is the sheer power of everyone in the entire production. What was it? Five or six years in the making? How the producers (yourself being one of them), the writers, directors, cinematographers…. every department – casting etc. managed to keep the discipline and control from beginning to the end is (that over used word) awesome.
