New York Post columnist/critic Lou Lumenick yesterday slammed Variety editor Peter Bart for the content of his 3.15 column which, in Lumenick’s view, makes Bart “Hollywood’s [new] blowhard-in-chief” for “once again pandering to the studio suits (i.e., his biggest advertisers) by attacking the New York TimesA.O. Scott and the legion of other critics (including Post critic Kyle Smith) who failed to appreciate the artistic subtleties of 300.”
