This Is Going to Get Meta 

Wednesday, Nov 11 2009
This is not a review, and therefore not criticism. If it were, it would be a writer criticizing a film about people who criticize film. That would be OK, but as For the Love of Movies director Gerald Peary points out, there's not a lot of drama in it. The film avoids talking head domination by including -- what else? -- clips from classic films. For you fans out there, though, it also features plenty of talking heads. Favorite moment: Siskel and Ebert, both with full heads of brown hair, panning One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
