And the list goes on of people agreeing with me to prove I’m not crazy…
Denby’s a bit of a fart, but he was an early supporter of Apatow in the days you wouldn’t expect him to be which him gives him some street cred in my perspective.
Here he talks about Slumdog Millionaire as a “high-production-value commercial for poverty” and The Reader as essentially a 15 year-old getting it on with a hot Nazi for a while followed by about an hour and a half of boredom, as well as the general Shitocracy that is the Oscars this year.
I agree with everything he says except for one thing- I don’t think 2008 was a bad year for movies; I think 2008 was a bad year for Oscar movies.
But still, well done and a kick in the pants, which I admire.
