"the uncontrollable mystery on the bestial floor"

I so wish I could write like this. (The link is to Stuart Klawans' superb write-up of the ecstatic/enthralling/exhilarating Kings and Queen, pulling waaaaaaayyyy ahead in the Film of the Year race. Klawans, perhaps the most elegant stylist among the major film critics, deserves far more exposure than he gets, that cursed subscriber firewall over at that leftist rag at which he toils blocking widespread dissemination of his reviews. So it's a boon to find out that you can get his reviews for free at this site, which is a compedium of lefty commentary. Worth a bookmark.)
