A quick retort to Clerksmoviefan1
2 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Good day to you,

This is the first time I have felt the very disheartening need to post anything of opinion in response to something I've read anywhere. Ever. This alone should signify the gravity and urgency that I wish to convey.It shall be as brief as the written word will allow me.

1) The title of your review,"An exercise in poor neurology",is what is truly baffling. 2)The admitted fact you've extracted nothing the most delightfully mesmerizing motion picture,The Life Aquatic of Steve Zissou,is once again what is truly baffling. 3)Your lack of even mentioning Sir William Murray in as great of a performance in this film as in lost in translation as Bob Harris is the last example I will mention now of what is most baffling about your wordy and long-winded review.

Your lack of years on this planet is painfully apparent in your reviews.I do realize that this is not something you or I can change,and indeed cannot be faulted for. I again do realize that this is one of the places that cater and pander to your demographic,which more than facilitates the amount of ease with which your word disseminates.

All that to say this;

A)Find something to extract from any Fellini movie before you review anything else with any European connection in any way. B)Ask yourself if you feel your review/opinion is necessary and qualified enough that you think the general public needs to read it.Less is,as a rule of thumb,more.

A respectable word to ya mutha,

This Guy
