FIlm Critic Quote of the Week

Sean Burns on "Babies," echoing my sentiments exactly:

See, there’s the rub. If you happen to personally know the kid, or even the parents, then children can provide untold wonders of fascinating minutiae as they go about their uneventful day-to-day activities. When my nephew first arrived, we’d all just stare at him for hours on end in such rapt fascination that my sister coined the phrase, “Watching Brandon TV.” Spending time with a baby you know is a moment-to-moment journey of miraculous discovery.

But when it’s a stranger, who gives a shit?

Babies are like fantasy football teams. I love my own. But I don't need to hear about some complete stranger's.
