It's usually a nice read--occasionally funny, informative, and definitely worth enjoying if you like the movies.
Did I say funny? Take one of Sunday's truly bizarre question:
Dear Mick LaSalle: You can't be serious. This movie is one of the worst ever made, and the audience at the ArcLight in Hollywood will agree.
R. Corbett, West Hollywood
Dear R. Corbett: I might agree, too, if I knew what movie you were referring to. But I do appreciate your taking the time to send me an opinion that you considered worth expressing.
Uh, I was thinking the same thing.
I recall when the Chronicle first hired LaSalle. His movie reviews were very entertaining. And his column was off the chart. My first thought was Who is this guy? And the name too. Great writer, good read and enjoy his work, particularly his take, for example, this past Friday on great cinematic kisses.
Who do you guys like to read?
