• The Silver Chalice

I’ve been mulling over J.R. Jones’s excellent piece this week on Michael Paul Stevenson’s doc Best Worst Movie and the general poverty of the phenomenon it addresses, i.e. organized cult worship of crap movies like Troll 2. I agree with Jones completely on the merits of the Best Worst, but maybe only with 89.8% of some of the other points he makes. The discrepancy has obliged to me to try to figure out what the hell it is I really think, which is a big headache really, but arguably also one of things reading criticism is supposed to do for you.
