In part two of my conversation with conservative film critic Victor J. Morton, we discuss why the art-house crowd pleaser "Easy Virtue" isn't that crowd-pleasing (even with that fine Jessica Biel), why movies starring silent-film great Harold Lloyd are brilliant and the canon of animator, filmmaker and all-around funny dude Mike Judge (whom Morton believes is a "closet conservative"). This particular part of the convo turns a bit weird when we both deconstruct the sharp, critical genius of Judge's prized creations, Beavis and Butthead.

MONDAY: I discuss the recent closing of a decades-old theater — and why Armond White still just ain't right — with a Chapel Hill blogger.
