“The Reader” Is a Bad WWII Movie: I have to agree with Slate here. “What, exactly, was the Kate Winslet character’s “personal triumph”? While in prison for participation in an act of mass murder that was particularly gruesome and personal… as a death camp guard, she helped ensure 300 Jewish women locked in a burning church would die in the fire—she taught herself to read!”
