The man who famously panned Toy Story 3 and Inception but loved Grown Ups and Jonah Hex once again finds himself at the center of a huge controversy. This time, though, it’s a bit more serious than his unconventional taste in movies. Famously contrarian New York Press film critic Armond White got national attention last week after getting into a public war of words with Darren Aronofsky and reportedly making Annette Bening cry at the New York Critics Circle Awards. Now White has accused that group of attempting to smear his reputation because of racism.
In addition to a brand new essay on the topic, which describes the events in detail, White appeared on Sirius XM’s Ron Bennington Interviews to not only comment on the events at the Awards but to air his beef with Village Voice film critic J. Hoberman and Entertainment Weekly critic Lisa Schwartzbaum. The full interview will air at 2 p.m. Sunday on Sirius Stars Too, XM 139, Sirius 108 but Bennington played some clips from the interview on his regular show, The Ron and Fez Show, which airs at 11 a.m. weekdays on XM 202, Sirius 197 .
