REVIEW – WATCHMEN – WHAT MY SON THOUGHT
My nare-do-well liberal son has a knack for summarizing complex systems into simple language. In Hollywood, we call that “high concept.” Late last night he saw Watchmen. This morning I asked him what he thought of the film and he said:
“There were too many good things about it to be disappointed but too many bad things about it to be happy with the result.”
Fair enough. I am no longer in any hurry to see Watchmen, but do look forward to seeing it eventually.
