Why must Simon inject politics into his reviews?
Jeff Simon’s recent critique of the film “American Sniper” takes aim at Clint Eastwood for injecting his political beliefs into this much-acclaimed film. Simon obviously does not share the same views as Eastwood. Therefore, Simon has chosen to hand out demerits when films or television presentations do not align with his own political views.
Fortunately, the Oscar nominations are not dependent on his critiques. I am sure I will still enjoy viewing Eastwood’s four-star work in spite of Simon’s three-star rating.
