MEDIA APPEARANCE: David Ehrlich's IndieWire Critics Survey on January 14, 2019
Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work. Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle members and Aaron White of Feelin’ Film, accepted the invitation to participate. I'm honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.
THIS WEEK'S QUESTION: What are the worst performers by great actors?
Upon hearing this question, everything Joel Schumacher-related when it comes to Batman screamed to mind. My pick for the worst was George Clooney being given awful material to embody a terrible Batman and Bruce Wayne. He is better and he deserved better.
