Re: A Small Hate


People feel racist guilt about Wesley Morris? Wow. Even I don't feel guilty about him and I'm the guiltiest-feeling white person in a hundred square miles.

Being a film reviewer for the NYT, like being Arnold Rimmer, is both a crime and a punishment.

The degree of ignorance of the age ladder for female movie stars that he feigns is pretty ridiculous. "Oh, I love Kate Hudson but why is she not in this bikini-centric movie?"

Kate Hudson is 37, Blake Lively is 28. You need know nothing else.

I had to look up who Morris was. I'm also not sure who Blake Lively is. A Tom Swifty type?

She was the one with the plantation fashion spread (or something), right?

Anyway, the trailer made the movie seem like a genuinely interesting* version of that kind of story. But it also made me think, "Shouldn't this woman be more buff for this role?" I mean, I get why she isn't, just that it was noticeable to me that she was being portrayed as kind of a badass, but didn't have the arms of a badass. Which I mean as a criticism of the industry/society, not Lively.

*or something
