Critical point 

Dear Mark Palermo,

This is in response to your mostly negative review of Al Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth. I have just seen it and have to strongly disagree with your review. I am sure nearly all of the people who have seen the film feel you're being your typically harsh self, and thereby doing a great disservice to many who would otherwise choose to see it. If Roger Ebert can give this film four stars—as he usually does to films that you tend to mysteriously pan—perhaps you might take note and not try to set yourself apart with often singly negative reviews. A conspicuous aesthete like yourself could be mistaken for a frustrated filmmaker. If you're not going to make important films yourself, the least you can do is call our attention to the films that matter most instead of muddying the waters so that they have less impact.
