Quote of the Day
“Nothing is so deathly to enjoyment as the relentless march of a movie to fulfill its obvious purpose.”
--Pauline Kael, from her 1969 essay, “Trash, Art, and the Movies,” which I culled from this Jonathan Kirshner quadruple book review. I'm not sure if Kirshner's review had an obvious purpose, but he told me so much of what I already know, or what is already established, that I never bothered to finish it.
