What is the best way to deal with negativity towards your work when you think it is the best possible product that you could have produced.

Artistic criticism won't help you[/I]
i think if you cower from negative reviews, you're not taking yourself seriously enough (i know there's such a thing as taking yourself too seriously, too, it's a thin line to toe maybe)
i point you to: thesis + antithesis = synthesis. only with consideration of the opposite point of view, will art, quality, work, sandwiches, anything, be improved.
If I believe it's good, why would I care if someone doesn't like it?
maybe i'm unclear as to how you define "artistic" vs "technical" critique. based on your two bologna critiques (thanks for going with the sandwich choice btw) it seems that you define "artistic critique" as any sort of opinion with unclear support, whereas in your "technical" example, your critic gives examples and reasons.
By artistic, I mean any criticism, even if meant to be constructive, that is toward the dialogue, the story, the characters, the jokes, the camera angles, the color. Any criticism that is purely subjective.
Technical criticism would be something like "this movie's aspect ratio is off by a little bit." Or "If this were shot on a Red Epic, it would look more professional" or "shouldn't those subtitles be in English?" Anything that is beneficial to actually making the movie, not commenting on the content the movie provides.
