Image so much subverts intention that Jeff Goldblum's tragic flyperson finally seems more ludicrous than affecting, voyeuristically bizarre.

Well, all of these journals (note I did not say newspapers - they stopped being that a long time ago) cater to a very specific audience, so it is natural that they would have a very narrow perspective on what makes a good movie. They employ only those people whose view is the same as the whorenals', or those who can quell any moral objections they may have with money.
