The Hockey Goalkeeper from Hell

The New Yorker: The Critics: The Current Cinema: "All movies bear a tint of it, in varying degrees, but it takes a vulgarian genius such as Lucas to create a landscape in which actions can carry vast importance but no discernible meaning, in which style is strangled at birth by design, and in which the intimate and the ironic, not the Sith, are the principal foes to be suppressed."

My favorite film critics are at their best when they really, really hate something. Masterpiece.
