    Karina Longworth is useless as a critic and pretty much unreadable. I cannot stand her work.

    actionman, I pretty much agree with you there. Also she seems to have a thin skin for someone in her line of work. Isn’t this the 2nd or 3rd time she’s pulled the poor me everyone is picking on me thing on Spoutblog? IMO she’s a better whiner than she is a film critic.

    I’m not sure who she is but her opening sentence doesn’t make any sense at all. “Every time Kurt Kuenne’s Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father, my review of the film gets a new flood of angry comments. ” huh?
