Armond White Interview by Steven Boone

Thanks to Matt Zoller Seitz (and company) and his House Next Door's blogfeed, I was alerted to an interview with New York Press critic Armond White, conducted by Steven Boone for the blog Big Media Vandalism. It's an acidic read, and will surely make you upset should you not be aware of White's views beforehand; still, Boone more than holds his own, doesn't back down, and the three parts end up being absolutely fascinating. It's not to be missed for the questions it raises in regards to digital filmmaking, Wes Anderson, Spike Lee, Sidney Lumet, Wendell B. Harris, and some priceless comments about the vapid, easily reproducible style of Ridley Scott.

Even though I don't agree with half of the comments by White (or Boone) and the hypocrisy on display is a bit numbing at times, it was fascinating to read and I really enjoyed it. The comments on the interview are rather silly. It seems like lots of readers think you must agree with White to enjoy reading what he has to say about films. That's a shame really. I enjoy reading contrary opinions myself and White is obviously a smart and insightful guy, even if I don't agree with every word out of his mouth.

For those interested, there's a blog out there that covers the Armond White book, "The Resistance: Ten Years of Pop Culture That Shook The World".

For those who don't know, the book is a collection of Armond White essays that cover the years 1984-1994.

here's the link:
