Film Lindy West: Pointless, Shitty, Not as Bad as Mudede!

you know that your column in the stranger serves no purpose right? your,”review,” if we can even call it that of,”Pets,” is worse that Pauline Kale’s review of Farewell Uncle Tom. I understand that the capitol cocaine hipster set has to approach everything with irony,but leave the Grand Illusion and exploitation cinema alone. Granted,you’re not as bad as Charles Mudede name checking fucking Hegel in a movie review,but still,shit is shit.
You’re welcome, Jason! You seem awesome.
But here’s the thing: that was a positive review. I guess I didn’t communicate it clearly enough (must be all this “capitol cocaine” clogging my brainz), but I had the fucking time of my life watching Pets at the Grand Illusion. And are you suggesting that you watch ’70s exploitation films without a hint of irony? Because that’s just weird.
Anyway, I’m sure the Grand Illusion appreciates your crusade to defend it against praise of all kinds.
