Tom Shone Defends Dan Kois And Richard Schickel Against Dargis & Scott

“The top twenty most critically rated films of the year and the top twenty most popular films of the year have absolutely nothing in common with one another. It’s not that they stray and squabble over the occasional movie: they share not a single film between them. And yet A O Scott wants us to believe that the film critic community have a “lingering bias” against art movies, and a quiver of put-downs for any film which dares defy the “orthodoxies of escapist ideology”? He has to be joking.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise.

Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
