If Seeing Is Believing, Who’s Seeing?

As an amateur film critic, I pride myself on being able to separate the subject from the art. To paraphrase Roger Ebert, a movie is not about what it's about; it's about how it's about what it's about. In past years, I've enjoyed wonderful films about heroin use, pedophilia and Holocaust denial, though I strongly condemn all three acts. It is the nature of the critic to think beyond his prejudices.
