I very much enjoyed your analysis of Mr. Sharrett's review. "We" definitely saw the same film, and saw the same things "in" the film, which Mr. Sharrett viewed or skewed rather differently.
You hit on the exact
key scenes and comments in his review that bothered me particularly. I didn't specifically mention these in my posting, preferring not to influence anyone else's reading of his review. But these were the precise elements that stood out for me, too.
Anyone else out there have a few minutes during their holiday preparations to glance over this "Hickey & Boggs" review and share their thoughts??
