Edelstein on Ignoring Critics


New York's David Edelstein, too, is disappointed that neither of the horror movies in wide release this weekend will be screened for critics. Over at the Projectionist, he writes: "I very much wanted to see Halloween II in mid-August and do a Q&A with Rob Zombie, who never has much to say on his commentary tracks beyond the logistics of particular shots ... Even when I’m squirming (often), I’m in awe of his in-your-face, kinetic way of shooting." Also, he reviews Ang Lee's new Taking Woodstock here. [The Projectionist]
