    The Essentials 2019

    What must be done to show this lady the door? Robert Osborne must be turning over in his grave. The Essentials used to stand for the exhibition of films that were landmarks in their genre. The films being shown today are amateurish at best. One film she screened, you could hear the wind noise picked up by the microphone. TCM used to mean classic movies, but today they pick someone who studied film by a correspondence and picks 8MM movies, she calls classics. My criticism is solely based on the experience of viewing the present day Essentials. Anyone who tries to twist sex or race into this is crazy!
  2. This is nothing personal, since I don’t know the woman. But based on her selection of films, her qualifications as a person with any real knowledge of film is questionable. As a person who graduated from film school, I sincerely doubt that a person who brags about being self taught and then selects worthless films has shown any talent befitting her position. I doubt if she has seen or could understand,”Hiroshima Mon Amour.” Therefore, based on her lack of knowledge, although it is “PC” to place a woman in her position, she should be removed forth with and replaced with someone who actually knows something that would be beneficial to their viewers.
