What Fun

A review claiming The Counselor is the worst film every made...and it makes me want to see it.  Reviews are rarely fun to read.  Maybe at one time, reviews were meant to discriminate for the audience how to spend their time and money.  I no longer read them that way.  I read them now as texts unto themselves, like accessories to outfits.  This is a fun quote:
If you eat dinner at Burger King and the food sucks, it’s disingenuous to get all mad about it. This is more like having Alice Waters and Mario Batali labor in the kitchen for a while and then serve you a gray-green burger on Wonder Bread, with what looks like somebody’s pubic hair stuck to it. But surrounded with whimsical garnishes of fresh herbs.
