Prof. Rosenbaum's chattering class

Posted by: spacecog

Do you lurk quietly by the hors d’oeuvres at cocktail parties because you have nothing clever to say? Well, put your wallflower days behind you with help from the Reader’s Jonathan Rosenbaum! Impress even the most suave sophisticates with your newfound knowledge of obscure European cinema!

Here’s this week’s guaranteed conversation-starter – with FUN PHRASES lifted directly from Rosenbaum’s review of Crash!

"Say, fellas, have you seen that movie Crash? Boy howdy, I’ve seldom seen so many racial and ethnic slurs hurled about by so many characters, heroes and villains alike (though Jan Hrebejk’s Up and Down, a strikingly similar feature from the Czech Republic that was recently nominated for an Oscar, comes close)."

(Stay tuned for more on Rosenbaum; his little review essay this week is a doozy!)
