Showing at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, this filmpreceded a panel discussion which was one of the best things I'dexperienced all week. That it should spark off such animated dialogueis only one of the good things about For the Love of Movies. I alsoadored the title, promising a documen...
'For the Love of Movies' is no more than a pedestrian low-budget TVprogram written slapdash style and directed by an untalentedfirst-timer. After paying to watch this cheesy video production in atheater, I think it safe to advise anyone interested in the subjectthat they should wait until it's aired...
Documentary about film criticism. It follows it from the days of silentcinema to the present. We're shown or told about the most influentialfilm critics ever. Most memorable are Pauline Kael and Andrew Sarrisand their debates through reviews. It also makes it clear that filmcritics are now being pha...
"I am a part of all that I have met; Yet all experience is an archwhere through Gleams that untraveled world, whose margin fades For everand for ever when I move. How dull it is to pause, to make an end,"--Ulysses, TennysonMy major criticism of this film (about film criticism) is that it endswhere i...
I recently viewed Gerald Peary's "For the Love of Movies: The Story ofAmerican Film Criticism," at the Lake Placid Film Forum. It drew asmall crowd. It wasn't aided by the seasonable weather, or its matinéeschedule. But the audience knew there was something genuine about it.For the first time, to m...
Since there are so few resources on the critique of film criticism(i.e., meta-criticism), a film like this is very interesting to me, andI suppose many others who are the frustrated film critics writing downtheir thoughts/opinions in venues like this on IMDb! I enjoyedlistening to what Andrew Sarris...
For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism (2009) *** (out of 4) Somewhat uneven but entertaining documentary taking a look at filmcritics from the past to the present. The documentary from directorGerald Perry actually features plenty of interviews with actualcritics, which is a m...
For the Love of Movies is an interesting, if rather dry, history offilm criticism. It starts from the beginning of cinema going to thepresent day. Overall, it is a mixed bag with difficulties in pacing.The long span of the subject matter has both benefits and drawbacks. Onone hand, viewers are intro...
I've been writing reviews online for a long time. I'm one of 'those'internet people that this documentary mentions with regards to'amateur' reviewers who now, of course thanks to the internet, canwrite whatever I want, whenever I want, online. And also of course thedifference between me and everyone...
I love this examination of the rise and fall of the professional filmcritic... while today we have Roger Ebert, Pauline Kael and A. O.Scott, in the beginning this was just not so. This documentary showshow the critics (notably Frank Woods) pushed how film was more"subdued" in its acting than theater...
This film gave me the fun of listening to various people talking on asubject that interests me. I love,also, the way that it was done in a1907 to the future manner that gave a historical form to it. Opinionsare such a pleasure to hear, no matter whether I agree or not. Myfavorite was James Cagney's ...
Witty, long-overdue documentary narrated by Patricia Clarksonchronicling the colorful history of movie criticism, from thesilent-era days of Frank E. Woods (who wound up collaborating with D.W.Griffith on the screenplay for his "Birth of a Nation") and VachelLindsay to the prolific internet bloggers...
I don't know why so many people have been critical of this production.If Gerald Peary hasn't put together a masterpiece, he's at leastdelivered a documentary history of film criticism, full of talkingheads and clips from the films themselves, that is both entertainingand informative.The two most eng...
It seemed a bit surreal. I'm in a movie theater with a bunch of moviebuffs, and more than a few of them review films professionally or justfor fun, like me. And, we're watching a documentary about the evolutionof movie reviewers.For the Love of Movies is a film by a guy who did it professionally,Ger...
There is a lot to be said for the film criticism industry. There is arich history and a multitude of viewpoints of its impact on modern daycinema. This documentary interviews various critics on the history andevolution of their industry in hopes of understanding its decline as awhole. Each critic le...
