Critic’s Other Corner

In connection with my last post, I’d like to draw your attention to Joe Morgenstern’s essay in the Wall Street Journal on how the critic’s perspective differs from that of an ordinary viewer, not because of specialized training or a certain background (although those are factors as well), but rather because of the timing; critics see these movies before the hype machines have really started to roll. We see them after.
