The Worst Best Movie

More good Webstuff, this time from Slate:

"A movie made by semiprimitives will submit more docilely to extensive Rorschaching than a self-consciously dark and mature Western like Little Big Man or McCabe and Mrs. Miller. As is so often the case, Kael deserves the last word: 'You can read a lot into The Searchers, but it isn't very enjoyable.' "

Why on Earth did The Searchers get canonized?

Just one quibble: Spirit of the Beehive is neither "impossible to enjoy" nor "obviously medicinal". Try "one of the best, most gorgeous and humane things ever put on film". Hmpt!
