For the Love of Movies - Movie Review

For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism (NR) 81 minutes C
For film lovers who are interested in film criticism

Starring various film critics (Documentary). Narrator- Patricia Clarkson

The title of this documentary says it all. It's a straight-forward examination of the history of film criticism along with discussions about what qualifies a film critic to critique films.

For the Love of Movies will not appeal to the masses. I really wanted to love this film but all I really loved was seeing the faces of a lot of film critics I've read but never seen.

The film is screening at a variety of theatres and festivals in the U.S. and internationally.
