SOLO ACTS

Strictly Film School – Acquarello, where do you find the time to do all this?
David Bordwell – Love him or hate him, there he is.
Dave Kehr – Nothing like sitting on Uncle Dave’s knee and hearing him talk about the good ol’ days of film criticism with the most eloquent disillusionment
Chris Fujiwara -
Ray Carney – the Svengali of Boston – I list him if only because this page helped me understand why Ordet is one of the greatest films ever.
Like Anna Karina’s Sweater – seems like a swell person to explore New York film culture with
Movie Martyr – as of October 2005, Jeremy Heilman has stopped updating his page. It was one hell of a run.
