"Rent" Asunder

These two wildly diverging reviews, by the NY Times' A.O. Scott and the LA Times' Carina Chocano, make fine back-to-back reading. Can't wait to hear more arguments like this—and it's not just because I find myself more in Scott's camp that I wonder whether the outrage Chocano showers on the film is wisely spent. (Her colleague, the hot air generator Kenneth Turan, prasies Syriana in exactly the sort of terms that make me want to look for a scathing takedown, as much as I look forward to the film.)
