"The primary task of (movie) critic is the recreation of texture, not telling the moviegoers what they should see, which is entirely their prerogative, but filling a sensory report on the kind of experience into which they will be wading, or plunging, should they decide to risk a ticket." -Anthony Lane, Film Critic
