Via the IFC Blog: Armond White slams David Denby for his glowing review of Paul Haggis’ LA race fable, Crash. I know I’ve disagreed with White in the past, but I’m glad he’s calling Denby out on this one. White’s take on the film:
These guardians of the status quo—Haggis among them—avoid admitting, confessing, realizing the real ways that social authority (whether legally held by the rich or criminally asserted by the poor) is used to the advantage of some people and against others.
I’m beginning to think that my original review was far too generous.
