An outstanding article, well worth your time. That said, if you're not used to HULK's "style", you may be put off initially. I urge you to get over that and indulge the content as it is both informative and thought-provoking.

Hmm... that's a lot to digest. Definitely one of the more interesting film criticisms that I've ever read. I think that most reviews just assume a certain technical proficiency on the filmmakers' parts & they rarely focus on those issues. Instead, they tend to harp on writing or performances. Or perhaps those reviews are just not written by people who have a great deal of understanding of the rules.

This was really cool. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

HULK UNDERSTAND CINEMATIC CONVENTION. ARTICLE GOOD.

edit 2.0: ahh... it's all good so long as you have some non-CAPS letters in there
