    Bad acting comes in many bags, various

    “Bad acting comes in many bags, various odors. It can be performed by cardboard refugees from an Ed Wood movie, reciting their dialogue off an eye chart, or by hopped-up pros looking to punch a hole through the fourth wall from pure ballistic force of personality, like Joe Pesci in a bad mood. I can respect bad acting that owns its own style.”

    “Book-jacket design may become a lost art, like album-cover design, without which late-20th-century iconography would have been pauperized.”
