Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work.  Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle members and Aaron White of Feelin’ Film, accepted the invitation to participate.  I’m honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.  


THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: What is the worst movie plot twist, and why?

The topic sprung forth from the buzz-building rug pull occurring in the rejected Matthew McConaughey/Anne Hathaway vehicle Serenity. Many movies are the homes to incredible and memorable surprises, but I think we’ve all seen a few twists that are memorable for the wrong reasons. I have no regrets or apologies, Christopher Nolan lovers. My submission this week was Matt Damon’s hammy heel turn in Interstellar, a movie with wonderful emotionality and high-mindedness, save for the 15 minutes given to Dr. Mann.
