These are not just the ones within the framework of the movie, like the nature of redemption, and what qualifies as redemption, but also the nature of reviewing. Whatever the purpose of a review may be, it is not to criticize a filmmaker for doing something different with the subject matter than the reviewer would have done. On the flip side, […]Read On »
