On the Eye of the Beholder

Film isn't dead, and neither is film criticism. What's deteriorating is the thoughtfulness surrounding the medium and how we treat and share our opinions. I try to work my way toward the cause of today's message board mentality, shed some light on my own tastes, and offer some advice on how we can tone down the unproductive nonsense. Fair warning: it's a long one.
