Nice job

Dave Kehr's latest New York Times DVD column contains a couple of unusual yet wildly sensible observations. The first is a surprisingly apt comparison between W.C. Fields and Yasujiro Ozu. The second is a reevaluation (a "flip-flop," if you will) of "Re-Animator," a movie Kehr trashed in the Chicago Reader when it came out in 1985. He thinks it looks much better now, particularly because of the resemblance between the disembodied reanimated head of actor David Gale and a certain presidential candidate. (I should also mention imdb's new plot keywords feature. "Re-Animator"'s plot keywords: Brain/Naked Woman/Syringe/Panties/Loss of Control.)
