A Whiter Shade of Pale.

Armond White: hates ignorant film-goers/Todd Haynes/Seven, loves The Life Aquatic/Steven Spielberg/"Billmurray". (Choice quote: "All Anderson's film-loving contemporaries have had their imaginations touched by Spielberg, whether they admit or not. Filmmaking is their great voyage and their best work—Election, Three Kings, Being John Malkovich, O Brother, Where Art Thou?—partakes of Spielberg's cinematic zest and humanist zeal.")

This is why I love Armond. He's all over the place, borderline insane, and compulsively readable.

Did LAT just hire you as a book critic? If not, they should. You've mastered the use of "compulsively readable." I'm sure you're very close to perfection of "a stirring examination of the American Dream," "A charming slice of Americana" and, most importantly, "a genuine tour de force."
