A Mensch and a Scholar and a Sly Wit
I don’t have any clever rants, trolls, snarcky witticisms to add to these comments. I just like Joe’s reviews and have read them for a long time. His reviews are thoughtful, often funny, insightful and, above all, humane. They shy away from the usual cinemato-speak of auteurs and genres. They remind me that humans watch movies to be entertained, not exploited, and that they can really add emotional dimensions to our lives. Even some schlock ones. But, whew! if your movie tries to exploit the good will of the audience, his wit can be a runaway slicer and dicer. If you read his review of, “The Sound of Music” (last century, guys) you’ll know what I mean. .
