Been having an e-mail exchange with the director of Fish in a Barrel, over my terse (and overwhelmingly negative) review of the film. I get a lot of letters from filmmakers unhappy with their coverage, but Kent’s letter touched me enough that I offered him a chance to explain the convoluted plot on the site. We’ll see if he takes me up on it. (Update: He opted out.)

filmcritic.com contributor Kevin Smokler has a fun analysis of the letter in question, which was circulated amongst the staff today to grand guffaws. Just in case you’re curious what critics say “behind closed doors”…
