Xavier Dolan Fires Back At His Critics
submit to reddit

Montreal director Xavier Dolan reads all his reviews and he's not afraid to call out his critics. When the 24-year-old was in the red chair recently, George talked to him about The Hollywood Reporter's scathing piece on his latest film, Tom At The Farm, accusing him of giving himself too many close-ups and "auteurial self-adulation."

Dolan's prompt tweet response made headlines: "@THRmovies you can kiss my narcissistic ass."

"It's called Tom At The Farm," Dolan told George. "I'm Tom. At the farm. So once we're at the farm, I will be in front of the camera. That's one thing we know about the movie... if I was not the director, we would not be talking about it.

"Is Woody Allen narcissistic for having put himself in front of the camera for all those years, kissing the hottest girls in Hollywood?"

Watch Xavier Dolan's full interview Friday, September 27 at 7 pm.
