Death to film critics: Ebert’s woes

While we are on the topic of critics and criticism, here is a woeful, yet interesting piece by Roger Ebert. He manages to mention evey newspaper and all their very real short-comings when it comes to the state of film criticism, and yet there is a haunting silence on the word limit he manages to follow week after week, film after film.

The article, however, is a great read, and precisely puts down the problems most critics with any love for cinema face. To read more, click here.

A WS special on Indian film criticism will be awesome.
