I do however think it's condescending to say "anyone who doesn't like this performance just doesn't have enough life experience" . It's a completely ridiculous thing to say.
I might agree with you except that I don't think they were saying that at all. What they were saying is that their life experiences are different, not that another person must automatically have less life experience or life experiences of a lesser quality.

To me it sounded more like "You just haven't been through enough or seen enough if you don't think this is a good performance.. Maybe you will learn one day"

Perhaps they did not intend it that way, but either way it is silly to assume anything about a stranger based off a simple opinion of an actor's performance.

" grateful that your life experience hasn't taught you just how realistic his portrayal of Benny's emotional distress was. "
No, it still sounds condescending. Just calling it like I see it.
"Thank you.. for the drinks."
