For a film I watched only reluctantly, and reviewed with even more reluctance (I’m honest here, despite my apparently gleeful attack on the film, I debated with myself for hours before writing anything, because I hate to be publicly negative about projects that others have clearly poured effort into) RiP!

Ezra Winton’s response at Art Threat is thorough-going and articulate and because I still hold to pretty much all my original arguments, I’d like to continue to debate with him in the next few days. Stay tuned.
