OK, for those of you not familiar with Manohla Dargis, here’s the short version: she’s a film critic for the New York Times. In fact, she is positioned as the next Pauline Kael – the heir to the throne of film critics. Notice I didn’t say “female film critics“. Does the gender of a critic matter? It does if you make her mad. Here, Ms. Dargis lets the F-bombs fly, venting her spleen about the position (or lack thereof) of women in the studio system. I must admit, I love Ms. Dargis’ writing, and I salute her for taking a stand. That said, I have never been on the receiving end of her diatribes, and evidently man, sometimes it stings. Ms. Dargis’ article (CLICK HERE) is thought-provoking. Check it out, and stay tuned for more!
