I love subtextual film criticism, especially when it’s fun, when a guy knows how to write in a readable, charming way. What I love the most about it is that it doesn’t have a f'ing thing to do with what the writer or the actor or the filmmakers intended. It just has to work. And if you can make your case with as few exceptions as possible, then that’s great.
