Re: Sexiest film
We have different tastes then. I like critics to sound like human beings who have gone on a journey with a film. I don't want someone trying to tell how important the shadows were in the third act. Unless they can do so in an entertaining / engrossing fashion.
Kermode is great. He's very funny and self-aware and likes to draw on a lot of his own experiences when reviewing films. And he clearly adores pictures in the same way that Martin Scorsese adores pictures, he doesn't sound like he's just spent a decade in some desolate environment, growing gradually more miserable with each new viewing.
Watching him rip into Benjamin Button made up for having to pay to see that dross.
