I don't mind when, say, a Roger Ebert writes politically-influenced movie reviews from the Left, or a James Bowman from the Right. What I object to is when politics robs people of their common sense. I thought of this today when I read a local reviewer's piece on the recent DVD release of Brian DePalma's Scarface, in which the writer makes himself look silly:
The film's laughable failure to cast any of the lead roles with Latin actors...seems almost unthinkable now.
I guess no one told him that the second male lead in the film, Stephen Bauer, is Cuban-American.
