everybody's a critic - addendum

pauline kael on bill murray:

his patent insincerity makes him the perfect emblematic hero for the stoned era. he has a genuine outré gift: he makes you feel that his characters are bums inside – unconcerned and indifferent – and he makes that seem like a kind of grace. (he's always an onlooker; he won't commit himself even to being in the movie.)

See there's where I don't trust Pauline Kael. The exact opposite of what she says is true, imho.

well you're the authority on grace.

we'd probably have to parse it out, since i imagine you'd agree with the parenthetical?

I don't think I know what a stoned era is.

i agree that it's hard to discern her intent there, but it resonates a little.

something like this perhaps.
