You're wrong about having to vent. Obviously venting is exteremely impt. Not so much for heat as moisture control. But a radiant barrier reflects a large % of the heat before it gets into the space. So even if you have no venting (I have never seen a house without some attic ventilation) you still gain with the barrier (notice the term barrier? That means it stops the Rad Heat before penetrating) I think we've about beat this dead horse enough. It's futile discussing Thermo and physics with people that prefer opinion over science.
