You may read the review, or you may not.
I just want to direct your attention to the author...

I see nothing in the review that public flogging cannot cure.  ;)

We already knew Jenkins' head wasn't on straight. This is only further evidence.

How times have changed. ‘Once Upon a Time…’ now looks like an over-cooked mess of style, metaphor and reference, while ‘Pat…’ strides ahead, every bit the poetic modern masterpiece.

Frickin' awesome.

No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.

Obviously this is a different person. I never use "David", I'm always "Dave." And I think my esteem for Leone's movie and my reservations regarding Peckinpah's film are generally known here.

Identity theft: oh, the sense of violation!



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Well, let's give it to him: he didn't place Dylan ahead of Morricone.

Yeah. But out of precaution - I wouldn't go searching through his other 'reviews'.

Everybody seems to have missed the point.
I was making reference to the fact that it's ironic that the guy's name is Dave (David) Jenkins.
Like that fellow Harmonica brought up to Frank (and obviously the name our Dave Jenkins is named after)?

Unless the guy was joking.

It's perfect timing, large one...

If the review came out on April 1, I'd suspect something fishy. This way... I still suspect something fishy, but I'm not so sure what it is.



There are two kinds of films in this world:those which stay,even when their genre is forgotten,and those which don't.
