Gorgeous and Brilliant or Bombastic Propaganda? The Exchange of the Day

Comment from Jay: Speaking of overlooked movies, how about City of Life and Death? Gorgeous, brilliant movie.

David Denby: Richard, your move. I missed it.

Richard Brody: City of Life and Death seemed to me to be bombastic propaganda.

David Denby: Oh dear.

--from “Ask the Author: Live Chat with David Denby and Richard Brody on the Oscars,” on The New Yorker site this afternoon.

I'm with Brody.
