Film critic Melissa Anderson talks about her cinematic “brides” in a new video series, Personal Views

We’re thrilled to unveil this new video series, Personal Views, courtesy of filmmakers Drew DeNicola and Miriam Bale (also a Film Comment contributor). This series will visit people in the film community to take a look at their personal relationships to film.

This inaugural edition also introduces the newest member of the New York Film Festival selection committee, film critic Melissa Anderson. In the piece, hear Melissa talk about her “brides,” the women in film who inspire her, including Susannah York, star of The Killing of Sister George (screening as part of the Film Comment Selects series), plus the double feature she would travel thousands of miles to see.
