Congratulations, Glenn (and I did vote for you). Mildly diverting, though I was a little put off by some of the names on the ballot and votes they received (that is to say, that they received any votes at all... Stephen Holden? Arrgh!)
Also, I was thinking of... hm, shall we charitably call your lack of love for Karina Longworth (which I generally share). She moderated a Q&A after a preview screening of Animal Kingdom with the writer-director David Michod and one of the actors last week in L.A.
She's pretty much what I expected (pretty young hipster in retro mode, a little off-putting in her manner). I'm not sure what she thinks of Animal Kingdom (and of course Q&A's often aren't the best place to express opinions) - but she seemed rather unengaged with the film and filmmakers at-hand, sort of uncomfortable. I think she asked two quick, pretty quotidian questions and then handed it over to the audience...
But I do have to say, she was pretty good at repeating/rephrasing audience questions (they didn't pass out mikes in audience so it couldn't have been easy to hear) in the simplest form.
Have you seen Animal Kingdom yet? I'd be curious to hear your thoughts. I thought it was pretty strong, if not quite as good as its title or the advance buzz would lead one to expect or hope.
Oh, on a final note related to the poll, does anyone know if Manohla Dargis just on hiatus from NYT? It's been a few weeks now since I've seen her reviews there... Hopefully that's just temporary.

Kent Jones

Donald, just to let you know that Manohla's hiatus is indeed temporary.

bill

Well, I voted for you. Also: Ann Hornaday??

NOBODY knows who any of you fucking nobodies are.

Get a job at Wendy's. They might have full bennies.

LOVE how you tools all talk about each other like you're the most FASCINATING sewing circle ever! KARINA! ARMOND! MANHOLA!

You idiots DO know that you are NOBODIES, right? Bunch a wannabe film people who couldn't hack it as screenwriters, actors, or directors. ALL OF YOU would sell your family to a Third World Nation to actually BE A STAR instead of just being a STARFUCKER.

But you're SOOOO above it all, all intellectual and removed and EDGY on the fringes, rolling around Silver Lake or Brooklyn or the Village in your poseur THRIFT STORE CLOTHES, TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL.

Trust me, all the OLD FUCK critics like Maltin or Turan? They would've been happier being Tom Cruise than being some bookish tweedy movie watcher.

Maybe you should all try BEING MORE TALENTED.

BITCHES.

Oh, and go ahead and BAN ME, Glenn Poseur. I got FIVE computers and all kinds of different emails and identities. You call me a DICK, you unleash a fucking FIRESTORM.

I'll be on here every fucking night talking shit about you until you apologize. BITCH.

FAT TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL STARFUCKER ALERT.

HACK MOTHERFUCKER. I DARE you to say an ill word about Ben Lyons after THAT shit. POSEUR.

You FUCKED with the WRONG MOTHERFUCKER, hack.

Glenn Kenny

Wow, man. You really need to go to bed, or something.

Just stop. I don't think James Wolcott is gonna endorse this.

LexG

You go to bed, BITCH.

You start something, you reap what you sow, MOTHERFUCKER.

You call me a DICK, I'll come back and fucking make you RUE THE DAY, you fucking has-been.

Glenn Kenny

N.b.: These comments are staying up because I'm waiting for the guy to do something actionable. He's getting kind of close.

Also, it's kind of funny, the way he throws around terms such as "BITCH," "MOTHERFUCKER" and "RUE THE DAY..." from behind A COMPUTER. I'm shaking.

Seriously, aside from the lameness, do you understand what a truly sad cliché it is for a grown man to be engaged in what you're doing, at 3 in the morning, probably bombed out of his skull?
