    Kael did not rave about “Straw Dogs”, unless calling it a “fascist work of art” qualifies as a rave. Her admiration for the good qualities in “Man of La Mancha” doesn’t qualify either; that review might be called an amused dismissal. And she did indeed review Michael Moore’s overpraised “Roger and Me”, calling it “shallow and facetious, a piece of gonzo demagoguery that made me feel cheap for laughing.” She concludes with this insult–“Roger and Me uses its leftism as a superior attitude. People can laugh at ordinary working people and still feel that they’re taking a politically correct position.”
