Critic is a four letter word. And yet in today's online environment, everyone shares opinions about just about everything. The true professional film critic is a rare and for fans, wonderful thing. For the past 20 years, Tom Shone has earned his crust as a film critic for The Sunday Times, The Guardian and now the Economist's intelligent Life magazine. He's written books about Hollywood Blockbusters, Martin Scorsese and most recently, Woody Allen: a Retrospective. The Toronto Star calls him The world's finest film critic for his writing which goes beyond movies to cast a critical eye on books, pop culture and politics. As well as being a film critic and a writer of books, he also teaches film history and criticism at NYU.
