Curious that the critical faculty tends not to be exercised
by those who have honed it, on the cultural matters that
do command people's attention such as movies and television shows.
One gets the impression that such a pursuit is beneath those
gifted folk. If so, it is a pity, for the function of criticism
could be valuably exercised in that arena. I'm certain that
the followers of the hirsute clay spinner would be very
enthusiastic about it.
