Big news. Those of you visiting the site over the last few months will have noticed a drop off in posts from me, particularly in terms of film reviews. That’s because, after 25 years as a film critic, I’m putting away my pen and pad and moving into movie producing.
It’s taken some long hard thinking and learning but here we are. My company is called Movie Love Productions, because I love movies, and with a nod to a collection of film criticism essays called Movie Love, by the New York critic Pauline Kael whose writing and style were very influential on me when I started out.
So, I’m going to make movies. Feature films, you know, like the ones you hear everyone talking about and can’t wait to go out and see. Films to make people fall back in love with cinema.
