For The Love Of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism
(Gerald Peary, 2009, USA, DigiBeta, 81 min)

As the art of film criticism continues to disappear from the pages of our daily newspapers, Boston Phoenix critic Gerald Peary decided to document the history of the craft in For the Love of Movies.  The result is an insider's view of the critics' profession, with commentary from America's best-regarded reviewers, including Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times), A.O. Scott (New York Times), Lisa Schwarzbaum (Entertainment Weekly) and Kenneth Turan (Los Angeles Times). We also hear from young, articulate, internet voices, including Harry Knowles (Ainitcoolnews.com) and Karina Longworth (Spout.com). From the raw beginnings of criticism before The Birth of a Nation to the incendiary Pauline Kael-Andrew Sarris debates of the 1960s and 70s, to the battle today between youthful on-liners and the print establishment, For the Love of Movies motivates audiences to consider reviews by the best American critics as a key component in watching movies in a deeper, more thoughtful way. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April).
