Every time I read something he has written, I weep with joy.
This is from an opinion section of a local newspaper that features his film critiques, which are superb - his critiques are works of art in themselves & are to be experienced in the same way as if one was to eat a really good Belgian chocolate truffle... mmmmmm...

On the issue of war with Iraq, I'll excuse myself from the discussion. It's not that I don't have an opinion. A war to deepen the pockets of oil tycoons and their lapdog legislators, to accelerate the depletion of natural resources, to divert attention from the dire state of the U.S. economy and the Bush administration's assault on bedrock liberties--something that should make true conservatives tremble--sickens me as an American.
Right now, though, something more than uninformed opinion is needed--especially that of a movie reviewer who's scarcely called to ponder anything more pressing than The Hot Chick. Pundits are poor substitutes for journalists and truth-tellers, whose voices, God knows, are hard enough to hear. So check out this Web site-- www.counterpunch.org --and let its provocations anger you either to action or informed disagreement. Seek out other sources. And demand more of your media than mute acquiescence.
