One thing I can't stand from film reviewers and filmmakers is this concept of "guilty pleasures." Film Comment tends to endorse this concept -- in their latest issue they ask Scorsese to name his; to my chagrin, he does so without a battle.

Let's leave guilt out of it, the world's so crappy anyway.
