    Jonathan Landman, NYTimes, comments that a review should inform, excite and entertain. “A reader should walk away with a feeling of having learned something; maybe some unfamiliar facts about a work and its creator; maybe some historical or philosophical background; perhaps something about the art form itself.” He added: “A review should make you want to run out to a play, flip on the TV, wake up to new possibilities. A negative review should be exciting too; why shouldn’t bad art make you angry?” Reviews, he said, are both a consumer service and news, and ought to be a pleasure to read. -- NYT 7/15/12 The View from the Critics Seat by Arthur Brisbane
