Mikel Koven writes about critics, for which, thank you. I'd personally
put Harkness very low on a list, because his attempt to be canny, his
rather bombastic display of self in his choice of intonation and
perspective, suggest to me too clearly that film is only a bandwagon he's
leapt onto in order to play with himself.
Isn't Dyer less a *critic* of film than a *scholar*? I don't at all
doubt the perceptiveness of his critique, but periodicals like S&S often
do use academic types for their "reviews." When you look in the popular
press, I think you'll be deeply disappointed.
