Film Critic Quote of the Week

Lindy West on "Eat Pray Love":

Objectively, Eat, Pray, Love isnít even that BAD as cotton-candy chick flicks go. But the unexamined privilege, the idealization/exotification of all places east, the canned spirituality, the sensual goddamn spaghettióitís all so focus-group-tested and Oprah approved and self-perpetuating and embarrassing that I just want to go and hide in an Ashram somewhere and suck on figs forever. And who knows? Maybe Iíll finally find a husband! Not that it matters. (Oh, but it does!!! It DOES.)
That was my second-favorite review of that particular movie. This was my favorite.
