About Camp

From this week’s Met Gala.

When something is bad (rather than Camp), it’s often because it is too mediocre in its ambition. —Susan Sontag, Notes on Camp, 1964
PS: The reliably tiresome Piers Morgan characteristically misses the whole big thing point by calling one of the red carpet sillies “preposterous”

I guess Susan Sontag's comments would also apply to Oceans 8. Same venue. Same problem.
