Snob­bery too far

- Entertainment · Movies · Italy · Wellington, New Zealand

Much as I en­joyed read­ing Chris Watkins’ crit­i­cism (Nov 24) of my re­view of the film Made in Italy, I do take is­sue with his ac­cu­sa­tion of ‘‘lit­er­ary snob­bery’’.

I ad­vised the readers – and this is in print – to stay at home with their loved ones, drink heav­ily and­make sock pup­pets, rather than see­ing the film.

Surely ‘‘drunken sock pup­petry at home’’ is just about the least lit­er­ary or snob­bish thing imag­in­able. In a fam­ily news­pa­per, at least?

As al­ways, thanks for read­ing and tak­ing the time to com­ment.
