Inside the Editing Process

A friend politely pointed out that the last sentence of my Grey Gardens post yesterday was terrible. I've taken it out. The offending sentence:
In any case, watching Grey Gardens is disquieting but worthwhile.
That's a tepid, pointless sentence. But what's worse, I meant it as a wrap-up of ethical considerations, but it came across as weak enthusiasm for the whole movie, which I heartily recommend.

This has been "Inside the Editing Process," a feature that will not recur, since I could criticize sentences of mine 36 or 37 times a day and would then have no time left over for anything else.
