From a reader on Apuzzo’s aspirations to be the cinematic Juan Cole:
[Apuzzo writes:]“So when my conservative friends know or care to know more about film, or when they know more about the arts in general, then I’ll accept their opining about Star Wars more than I do now.”
As the associate producer and researcher of Inside the Actors Studio,
MFA in Dramatic Arts, I hereby confer upon Richard Brookhiser of Yale
and Jonah Goldberg of God Knows Where, the right to comment on whatever
they freaking well choose to comment on.
I also officially denounce any attempt to defend George Lucas on the
basis of either argumentum ad verecundiam or ad populum fallacies. I
don’t give a rat’s ass if he’s popular or graduated from USC film
school. People can make bad movies and still be expert and popular.
And another thing: nyahh nyahh.
