I am never offended when someone scoffs at a movie I love. In matters of opinion, we are all entitled to admire (or not) the films, TV shows, books and music that move us. There have been widely admired films that did very little for me, and others I loved that did not score with critics or at the box office.
I am blown away by the diligence and the artistry that have given us Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood,” the nearly three-hour rocky ride through a family’s life that took twelve years to shoot. Just the other day I ran across some folks who found it a crashing bore. I obviously disagree, but it matters not one bit. We like what we like.
