From the blogs: Film Criticism in Crisis?


“If we did not solve the crisis, (or even agree that there is much of one), it was a pleasure to see and hear intelligent talk about international film criticism,” writes James van Maanen of TrustMovies.

Cahiers du cinema editor Emmanuel Burdeau was perhaps the hit of the panel, offering lengthy tales of the how and why of Cahiers’ current crisis, as well as telling us how very good and underrated was the film Cloverfield (I fully agree with the gentilhomme on that one),” writes Keith Uhlich of The House Next Door.

“We could have probably launched at least several large balloons given all the hot air being blown in the conference room, but perhaps that’s something I should have seen coming. at least people are talking,” writes MGJR.
