Out of curiousity, why won't you see the movie?
It sounds pretentious. I think I'd be bored rather than entertained, enlightened or educated.
And Debbie Schlussel and I seem to have similar tastes in movies judging by previous reviews (IIRC, she liked the Matrix, Buffy) so if she didn't like it/missed the point, I probably would too.
But that Cuban would engage in the debate makes me think he's not an rip-down-America whiner like Robert Redford.
And just because an artist misses the mark doesn't mean he shouldn't get points for trying.
And Debbie could be dead wrong. Word of mouth might be enough to make me give it a look. If it came on TV & I happened to catch it while channel surfing, I probably would.
