I just saw the movie Fuel
despite the horrible review given by your paper [Film Listings
, Nov. 21]. I am shocked and amazed that this review made it past your editing department. Did he even see the film? Everyone in the audience applauded and was inspired. This was an ugly, almost vindictive, review and had no justification for calling the film an infomercial. The Chronicle
is "supposed" to be a paper of the people. Which people does your reviewer work for – the Bush administration or perhaps the oil industry? Is there some sort of kickback or advertising with your paper that conflicts with alternative-energy ideology? I feel an apology should be given or another review (by another person on your staff) to fairly evaluate this film! This review borders on the libelous side. I will make it my personal mission to make sure that your reviewer is exposed for the small, bitter person he is.
