Personal Quote:

[on the detractors of The Rules of Attraction (2002)] It does not matter to me if you hate the movie. What matters to me is if you are ambivalent. Anybody can do "thumbs up, thumbs down". That's the real problem with film criticism today. It's been reduced to "I like it, I dislike it". Criticism should be more of an examination of exactly why a film makes you feel the way you feel.
