I See What You Did There, Film Comment.
(apologies for the eye-strain, click to enlarge)
Film Comment’s Laura Kern finds a clever way to cut her workload in half, doubling her vitriol for 2 new films in the process.
for what it’s worth, your humble host doesn’t think that either of these films deserve such scorn, but… ya know… i see what you did there.
p.s. folks, no one’s getting fired for this. this isn’t something that snuck by some of the sharpest editors in contemporary film criticism. it’s merely Kern’s effective (if reductive) means of playing these 2 films against one another in order to illustrate how they mutally expose their shared banalities… it’s not a point with which i agree, but it is a point well made.
