To my mind, we need some more "good" fairy tales, in that we need the inspiration to work at the realities of our selves, and of course each other, and of course the larger world. The giving it up to God almost spoiled my enjoyment of the movie.

The question of whether we see the world through the eyes of Javert or Valjean amounts to our understanding of justice. For Javert, justice is retribution in the interest of maintaining an abstract order; for Valjean, justice is solidarity in the interest of personal love.

This film poses the question, Can a successful Broadway musical be turned into a successful movie? Sure it's been done, but this interpretation of Les Miserables is not it.

Do Critics Hear the People Sing? In Defense of Les Miserables

Ben Lerner | Posted 03.04.2013 | Entertainment
Ben Lerner

I'll save the review, but the faithful film of the musical phenomenon is just as emotionally exhausting and breathtaking as it should be. It left me properly devastated and touched, and surely ready to analyze the performances.

2012 in Film: The Overrated

Scott Mendelson | Posted 02.28.2013 | Entertainment
Scott Mendelson

I wrestled with even doing an 'overrated' list this year. First of all, the very idea of such a list is to merely tell other critics and/or the masses that they are dead-wrong for liking something, which I'd argue is very different from telling someone they're wrong for disliking something.
