To the Editor:
Reading Harvey Weinstein’s Guest Column (“Pick of the Crix: An Appreciation,” Daily Variety, July 23), I felt that I must have fallen asleep during Eulogy 101. I thought you were supposed to honor the deceased, not use them as a trumpet to laud the films you have made.
Are you sure four of your “illuminating” films were enough to fit into Alexander Walker’s eulogy, Mr. Weinstein? Surely you could have squeezed in at least one more. Mr. Walker had to have had nothing but praise for “Air Bud.”
Alexander Walker was an excellent and revered critic and should be remembered as such. To those of you who had not heard of him before Mr. Weinstein’s article, yes, he did review films not produced by Miramax and you should read them.
