When a guy (using a serial killer persona, Dexter meets Roger Ebert) reviewing a movie is more entertaining than the movie itself, things have gone horribly wrong.
David Mamet said "Good theater is people doing extraordinarily moving tasks as simply as possible. Contemporary playwriting, filmmaking, and acting tend to offer us the reverse--people performing mundane and predictable actions in an overblown way."He could have been talking about George Lucas on both points.

But is George Lucas listening?
