this is brilliant.
erm...i can't really remember how i stumbled upon this review. i think a friend forced me to read it, if i remember rightly.
anyway, that's not important. what is, is the fact that the critic takes it seriously and is eloquent and thoughtful in his evaluation without coming off creepy and weird.
this is my favourite line....
...''That quote aptly captures both the general theme of this movie and the root of Black's stultifying appeal. No matter how mussed up, how unflatteringly positioned, how out-and-out defiled she gets on camera, the girl remains stunningly, breathtakingly beautiful''
i love it because he writes in the exact same way that people routinely write about books and films and records. but it's grotty porn. which is brilliant.
