Access to evil

The filmmakers of Chaos, a new horror flick uniformally shunned by critics, wrote a letter to Roger Ebert objecting to his zero-star review. Read what they said, and what Rog wrote back -- his response is a deft and sublime analysis of our relationship with the movies in the disguise of a level-headed retort. And if I was Jay Bernheim or David Defalco, I'd be crying, in the dark in the bathroom, about the futility of my life and art. Oh snap.
