Sam Mendes’ Empire of Light, HE’s choice for the Best Film of ‘22, has earned a solid passing grade (75%) from Joe and Jane Popcorn on Rotten Tomatoes. This represents a significant 30-point difference from the views of RT critics, most of whom are operating under the yoke of wokester mind tyranny and therefore compelled to dismiss the curious but compelling romantic dalliance between Olivia Colman and Michael Ward’s characters.
