  • Celeb tweets help push Anvil to success: I’m not sure about this. The New Yorker‘s Anthony Lane gave this movie a rave, pretty much out of nowhere. How often does that happen for this kind of film? Is that irrelevant? Did it happen because of Twitter? Does it perhaps suggest that the quality of the actual movie might have something to do with its relative success? And why isn’t that success defined — why isn’t there a number of some kind in this story to help us understand how successful the doc actually is, relative to other docs?
