about him trying to elevate an entire genre or some bullshit? You really think that he thought he was sooo much better than the people who made some of his FAVORITE films?
I guess what I am saying here is that I don't judge art by the paint brush.
For someone to say that the dialouge seemed contrived and not to point out that it was possibly on purpose is a bad criticism. Because he INTENDED the dialouge to be contrived! So he is using it as a tool. I can't say that you're not allowed to do that. I just can't make that rule. But I CAN say that it wasn't very effective in this case. And that maybe he was going for a tension build up that just simply fell flat. I can judge artists on the effect they were going for. But I never can tell an artist not to use a certain technique or tool.
Art is a strange thing. Believe it or not there are artists that try to get bad reactions out of there audiences. And well if he was going for that (haha) I think he succeeded with flyng colors - from what I've read anyway.
