From Kelly Reichardt, the respected fringe-indie director of First Cow, which I’ll definitely watch later today:

What “damsel in distress”? Rick Dalton’s Italian wife? And it was Rick, not Cliff Booth, who used a flame thrower on one “scummy hippie”, i.e., Susan Atkins in the pool. And if Reichardt really and truly doesn’t understand the allure of a shirtless Brad Pitt on the roof…well, what can be said except “whatever, Kelly…go with God.”
