Bored Dead

February 14, 1988

Psst, film fans, can we talk?

But, very quietly, and look cool, too. Now, what did you really think of "The Dead"?

We all agree that John Huston lived a majestic life, leaving behind an artistic legacy to thrill and enlighten future generations. And there's no question that daughter Anjelica is a wonderful actress and that son Tony has literary credentials.

But afterward, did you pass on the Tex-Mex and go searching for cooked goose? Maybe if "Andre" had been invited to that dinner . . .

So, despite its inclusion on almost every 10 Best list and at the risk of being branded a disrespectful Philistine, allow me to whisper a humble dissenting opinion: "The Dead" is an uninvolving, lethal bore.
