  • Am I a Partisan Hack?
    (”Body Double” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Frequently I hear the charge (lately aired in response to my review of “The Campaign,” about which more below) that I automatically like right-leaning movies and instinctively recoil at left-leaning ones. To quote Sam Alito: Not true. For instance. In 2009 I placed on my Ten Best List the left-wing Iraq War satire “In the Loop,” made by Armando Ianucci, a Brit filmmaker who despises George W. Bush and tears into Tony Blair, from the way-left. I tore into the right-wing “Act of Valor” and was unkind about a Sarah Palin hagiography (though I hasten to add that I like Palin and was saddened to see her essentially furnish a letter of resignation to the American political system, at least as an elected official). I gave a 3-star review to Brian DePalma’s harsh anti-Iraq War drama “Redacted,” though as a veteran myself I am probably more sensitive than the average to suggestions that all of our troops are rapist thugs. (And the movie didn’t actually make that case; it showed a few of the men going bad, but others were trying to stop them, and anyway I don’t see how one can disagree that war can have dehumanizing and alienating effects.) I think DePalma’s career has been an interesting study of the nature of seeing (certainly “Body Double,” “Femme Fatale” and “Snake Eyes” are) and the film has an interesting take on the way images and ideas of war (or other news events) come to us in fragments and through filters. True, I gave a tepid 2.5 star thumbs-up review to the somewhat amateurish “Atlas Shrugged” (as I did to Madonna’s “W.E.”) because in each case I thought the movies at least had a little bit of freaky energy, and my default state of mind at the movies is sludgy boredom. So today I was reading (the unabashedly left-wing) The Onion and, despite being a Mitt Romney supporter, I was laughing at this. Laughing, because it’s a clever observation that leads somewhere and has a degree of truth. Romney Stuck In Endless Loop Of Uncomfortable Chuckling I like Will Ferrell but sometimes he’s funny and sometimes he’s not. (Zach Galifianakis, I am increasingly convinced, has no talent.) “The Campaign” (see my review, which is written from the point of view of a somewhat dim politician) is half-assedly a left-wing film but that doesn’t bother me per se. When we say of comedy, “It’s funny because it’s true” we also mean “If it’s not true, it’s not funny.” There is a lot of inspiration for satirists in politics. So it’s amazing that there’s no truth to “The Campaign.” It doesn’t lead anywhere except to dumb-guy jokes. This guy’s got a fat mustache and talks in a girlish voice. This one’s so moronic he makes a campaign ad out of a sex video. Likewise, the movie’s portrayal of the Koch Brothers (“the Motch Brothers”) betrays no insight into what massive campaign ad spending does or can do (none of the campaign spending unleashed by these two doofuses would sway anyone who votes) nor is it a dead-on depiction of what capitalist libertarians believe or do. ]]>

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
