The Vancouver Sun‘s Chris Parry has cited numerous instances in which junket critic Paul Fischer — an Australian commonly known for dispensing favorable junket-whore quotes — has used festival notes and synopses to fortify his reviews.

As Parry puts it, “In a case of the world coming full circle, a film reviewer who has made a name for himself being quoted in movie marketing materials is accused of plagiarizing large chunks of his film reviews — from movie marketing materials.” I’m sorry for Fischer, whom I know from the junket/festival circuit, and the woes he must be going through now, but he seems to have made his own bed. Parry’s reporting appears fairly precise. There doesn’t seem to be much room for doubt.
