Harry Potter: Pop Culture?
Aug 10, 2003
Not according to Denver Post Critic-at-Large Kyle MacMillian, who quotes one of the top op-makers at the New York Times, Frank Rich:
“The children entranced with Harry don’t need a fast cinematic cut to whip them to attention, with an MTV lash, every few seconds,” he writes. “They are perfectly happy to concentrate on a sustained narrative that in ‘Phoenix’ sprawls to a Dickensian 870 pages.”
Thanks to Lee for the Frank Rich link!
