Is Lindy West’s internship over yet?
A movie review should be something that helps the reader decide if the discussed feature is worth spending their time and money to view. Ms. West’s reviews are basically about Ms. West, her adolescent opinions and some yammering on about something or other that usually has nothing to do
with the film. Its not useful and honestly, its not even entertaining.
Please, could someone on the editorial staff find some time to mentor her or, at the very least, read and edit the copy?
Uhh, what planet are you from, person? Is it cold there? Is it as cold there as it is here? Is it all very relaxing and literal there? Ms. West’s internship ended when Ms. West was a good year or two younger than Ms. West is now, and Ms. West continues to write movie reviews for The Stranger because, well, Ms. West is just about one of the best freakin’ film reviewers I’ve ever read. Seriously. If you read Ms. West’s reviews and can’t decide if you want to spend your time and money on a movie, well, I don’t know what to tell you, but the problem isn’t Ms. West. Do you get Seattle Weekly out there? You might like it.
Wait, hold on a second, are you Hilary Swank?
