Fun with the archives

Say what you will about Rosenbaum, he's far more postcolonial and culturally aware than anyone else on the planet. Just ask him.

-On "Kids": "The New York Times's Janet Maslin called this 'a wake-up call to the world' -- meaning, I suppose, that rice paddy workers everywhere should shell out for tickets and stop evading the problems of white Manhattan teenagers."

-On "Once Upon a Time...When we Were Colored:" "The film has its hokey moments but it also has a good many quiet virtues and strengths, which is perhaps why it was rejected by the trendy Sundance film festival: there's hardly an ounce of hyperbole in it."

-On "Comrades, Almost a Love Story:" "Full of heart and humor, capturing the times we’re living in as no Western film could."

-On "Carrington:" "One should certainly object to the deletion by the American distributor, Gramercy Pictures, of six minutes of the original film (apparently much of it gay sex) on the safe assumption that most Americans, including most critics, won't care enough to object."
