Oh good. I was afraid it was going to be one of those cute empty lists. I can’t say I’m impressed, simply because I’m not impressed with any film critics. If only I could get paid for having opinions!

Well, there is the important distinction between film reviewers and film critics. Film reviewers just have an opinion, as does everyone. Film critics have an informed opinion. Of course, if one accepts this distinction, then I suppose one must acknowledge that most critics are really only reviewers.


Phrasing. How exactly does a critic of color do their job? Do they throw in lots of pretentious BS when discussing various colors like wine-tasters do with wine?

I like this mauve, it has a certain musky oeuvre that lacks the earthiness that the puce or feldgrau has.
