Roger's review of "Milk Money."

My favorite movie essay from Roger is his review of the preposterous film "Milk Money." He makes no effort in attempting to redeem or condemn. Rather, he imagines the transcript of the filmmakers pitching a family movie about a widower and the hooker his sons hire to fix the hole in their lives.
The "review," however, ventures into the tangled lint of corporate navel-gazing, looking for the enlightened core of the story. They want the film to be a service to society, by making the film a commentary about the environment. Wetlands, in particular.
Roger hated this movie, but he would have loved the documentary about its making. The script he provides was more substantive than the final product.
