Wants Film Description Not Review

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 5, 2006

Dear Editor,
    For those of us who look at the movie reviews to see what a movie is about and don't care about the long-winded ramblings of a reviewer who seems more interested in impressing herself with her ability to write like William F. Buckley (who writes for less than .001% of the population, and probably only 1% of them can understand him), then Marjorie Baumgarten's unreviewed movie descriptions with only two or three sentences are great; if she could start each review with that, then we could find out what the movie is about in a nutshell without the ramblings, and you wouldn't have to read my rambling sentence.
