This is the closest format we have to a traditional movie review on this blog. Of course, like everything here at Pop Modern, it’s a bit different than typical articles of its kind. A “Silver Screen, Silver Tongue” article eschews critical notions of assigning numerical values or star ratings to films, instead choosing to define the movie in question with a single, esoteric adjective. It’s then the author’s job to explain to the reader what about that adjective captures the spirit of the film, and in this way reveal his opinions on it. It’s a way to convey the ineffable emotional resonance of a film, without getting bogged down in arbitrary, quantitative assessments.
