Film Critic Quote of the Week

Sean Burns piles on "Lions For Lambs" in Philadelphia Weekly:

For something that fancies itself a call to action, itís ironic that Matthew Michael Carnahanís screenplay canít even be bothered to dramatize anything. One of the least cinematic movies ever made, Lions for Lambs is simply a sloppily photographed recording of four underwritten characters sitting around reciting generic, dumbed-down talking points at one another inside drab offices... Itís the role of an artist to not just comment on current events, but also to shape that commentary into a dramatic form thatíll excite, move and inspire people. Lions for Lambs isnít filmmaking; itís list-making."
