A.O. Scott and David Carr of the New York Times Argue Eloquently and Wittily About the Objectivity of Truth and Beauty When it Comes, in Particular, to Movie Reviews

Plato argued about whether beauty hews to any objective standard.

We’re still at it.

I’m on your side, A.O. I value your reviews because they insightfully lay bare what a movie is saying, helping me understand my culture without having to wallow in it. You grope after an objective standard, unwilling to say what it is but unwilling to deny that it exists.
