JEHOSAPHAT! DAVID THOMSON & LAWRENCE LEVI IN FILM-SNOB QUARREL!

Recently, one of the co-authors of The Film Snob*s Dictionary, namely Lawrence “Looker” Levi, gave a rather unfavorable New York Times review to David Thomson’s book-length appreciation of Nicole Kidman. This prompted Thomson to write a peeved letter to the Times Book Review in response in which he actually makes a snide reference to The Film Snob*s Dictionary, a book Thomson admits he hasn’t read.

Gentlemen, gentlemen! Please, why don’t you both drop this feud and focus on your common ground, namely that you, along with Levi’s co-author David Kamp, share a spirited enthusiasm for Douglas McGrath’s Truman Capote film Infamous, which at last is getting its U.S. release?
