For the Love of Movies
80 minutes
Director(s): Gerald Peary
Sat 9:30 am Armory
For a hundred years, through the history of American movies, film critics have championed the medium they so unabashedly love. They advise audiences in deciding what movies to see, and why. Their reviews illuminate the film-going experience, suggesting paths for readers to enter cinema more deeply, thoughtfully and appreciatively. This is the first documentary to dramatize the rich, fascinating history of American film criticism, from the raw beginnings of the first reviewers to the incendiary Pauline Kael-Andrew Sarris debates of the '60s and '70s. This insider's view of the critics' profession carries us all the way to the antagonistic relationship between blogs and websites and the print establishment. An amazing cast of America's best-regarded reviewers provide entertaining, humorous, and personal commentary on their profession and the movies they love- or sometimes despise.
