All who do not think that Jon Asp is a antiintellektuell group of supporters that threaten american films sensitive ecosystems. Swedish film critic in general, except Jon Asp, sacrificing willingly the quality control on the films, in particular the English, have a so-called urgent matter. ”Aniara”, ”Goliath” and ”Amateurs” has given way for the high score, write the Asp indignantly in Aftonbladet (28/2). And most of us have apparently also missed that the långsamverkande, black-and-white masterpiece ”Roma” is a ”consummate Hollywoodprodukt”.
Point-of-view ( povfilm.see), Jon Asp redaktörar, it is Monday all week. The same humorlösa litany cranked again and again – also paid for by the prominent distributor Triart who finance the journal.
”In a declining market increases the ängsligheten, the desire to reach readers by positioning itself right in time, clearly take a stand for the good and the vulnerable,” continued Asp her self-righteous didacticism.
For the first; most of us active film critics in the major media is an experienced bunch. We do not need to be particularly anxious, is not paid by the film industry and is often quite different.
For the other; toothless politically correct positioning is hardly any klickfest in the today's turned up media climate. Sorry, it is drastic formulations, rock-hard breakfast table video conference or tokhyllningar that generate reading. The challenge for today was film critic is that I see it is to not be tempted by the digital lockropen, to catch and finding the strength to write elaborate, aesthetically and politically researched texts for filmsamtalet forward and where the grades are just a number.
