Tale As Old As Time (Or At Least Since The Last Election)

In his review of the new Disney live-action Beauty and the Beast, New York Times film critic A.O. Scott drops this gem in describing the movie’s villain, Gaston:

“He goes from annoying to evil when he stirs up the anti-intellectualism and xenophobia of a populist mob to serve his own egomaniacal ends. The residents of the castle fight back because their humanity is at stake. It’s just a fairy tale.”

I see what you did there.  Well played, sir.  Well played, indeed.
