Charles Weinstein quotes Kingsley Amis on

>"Real, over-mastering, orgiastic boredom, and its companion, real hatred."

Let us not forget that for some, boredom is a form of self-indulgence.
And it is not clear whether it precedes, or follows from, hatred.  I'm
not sure, in other words, whether you really hate Pacino's acting
because he's boring, or whether the order of events is reversed.

Yours, yawningly,
