The Four Types of Spoilers and How Reviewers Should Handle Them

A rough and inevitably incomplete guide to the taxonomy of spoilers

It's the same when we read reviews. We read them because we think we want some context for the play or the film or whatever, but often we don't. I read them because I, like everyone else, am cursed to experience each piece of art I encounter filtered through the narrow view-slit of my own tastes, biases, education and experience. I only see what I can see. But good critics can show me what they saw. Stick with that, why don't you.
