I love this quote in the Slate article: "whether a work is good or bad is just one of the many things to be said about it, and usually far from the most important or compelling."

It's true; I tend to value most the criticism that seriously entertains the issues the films raise, or talks about historical context, or contemplates the value in more than a "pass/fail" kind of rubric. Pauline Kael is a great example of that.
