I just wanted to use that word, since I never do.
the kneejerk reaction comes from having spent too much time with a bunch of art school students praising how "bold" and whatnot Guiseppe Andrews stuff is. the same people calling masterpieces "outdated" - Hitchcock for example.
I had these little fucks sitting in my living room, arguing why they never even watched a single Hitchcock film, but know all about "Guiseppe."
I remember one of those 20somethings said David Lynch is "just a director" but Guiseppe is "a true artist - and he does everything himself, muti-talent!" I hate these people.
