Voice From the Past Likes Paper but Not Review

RECEIVED Thu., April 22, 2004

   I don't know if you remember me, but way back around 1967 and 1968 I was an undergraduate student in the Department of Radio-Television-Film. I think we had a film criticism class together ... possibly several other classes as well. I do recall going to several of the same parties during those years, and I also remember your bowling shirt collection that I thought was pretty cool.
   In any event, I have now moved back to the Texas Hill Country, and while having lunch at Threadgill's today I picked up the latest copy of The Austin Chronicle. My congratulations to you and Nick and Marjorie. I was aware that you guys had stayed together and were the forces behind the newspaper, but I was surprised that the Chronicle has grown to being over 150 pages/issue. Congratulations! I know this is the result of a lot of hard work, so please do pass along my admiration to all involved.
   I couldn't help but take a look at the film reviews (for two years I wrote reviews for a local paper in Colorado), and I had to write to say that I disagree with Marc Savlov's reaction to The Passion of the Christ. In fact, let's say that I disagree quite a bit.
All the best,
