Re: Armond White Appreciation Thread

I've listened to about 20 minutes of his Django talk on that podcast, and as a very big fan of Tarantino, and in particular that film which I would probably put in his top 4 (and I like all of them),...

Armond White Appreciation Thread

Re: Armond White Appreciation Thread

Armond White is a baffling case. He's a legit critic. He has the history and the knowledge and (at one point) maybe even the taste to have been one that matters. But then he slipped into some kind of...

I've watched Salo twice at home and once in a theater. And then gave a copy to my friend for Christmas.
