Dear A. O. Scott of the New York Times Film Section,
Is it really necessary to include in your Critics’ Picks the following films: The Graduate, The Maltese Falcon, The Bicycle Thief, City Lights, Ben Hur, Annie Hall, It’s a Wonderful Life, et cetera? Critics have already told people that these are good movies.
And also: is it necessary to use a video format for Critics’ Picks? Your features displease me.
