Re: Sexiest film
Wich is fine, people doesn't have to think identical.
But having a journey with a film or enjoying it a personal level dont relay from being able of making an analysis that put both elements in a review.
Kermode like his thing but is also pretty hypocritical with things that are out of his comfort zone. Again i agree in that is great to enjoy your work, hell i enjoy making reviews like hell to, but reviews and writing are more than just personal experiences i can assure you that people like Rosenbaum, Martin, Truffaut or Godard when they were crtics love movies at the same or even more level than Kermode.
Critics can make a difference and people should be more aware of that and us like readers should require this. Is for critics like Godard and Truffaut that filmmakers like Ray, Welles, Fuller, Hitchcock or Hawks are highly valuate today
