The Village Voice: Awkwardly Shoehorning Movies Into Statements on the Zeitgeist Every Tuesday

From Dennis Lim’s assessment of the new Wes Craven thriller Red Eye:

“If anything, given its gently misanthropic view of the general populace as rude, pushy, self-absorbed Dr. Phil readers, Red Eye could even be called anti-American—a parable on the horrors of flying coach, from one red state to another.”

Sure, Dennis. The deadline’s looming and the review needs a little heft? Just trot out red states and hope for the best. But seriously, have you dudes ever even set down in flyover country?

Oh, and just once, perhaps, could somebody write the name “Larry Cohen” and not follow it, within the space of a sentence, with the word “pulp?” That’d be killer.
