A quick explainer on classic movie reviews

29 Aug

For your benefit as readers, when I review a classic movie — a film that is generally critically acclaimed and more than 10 years old — I will typically delve a bit deeper into overall themes and characterization and will sometimes discuss the more technical aspects of filmmaking  (sound, editing, cinematography) a bit more. While I do my best to avoid out-and-out spoilers, more plot is revealed  in these types of reviews than my typical comments on newer cinema.

If you ever believe I have written a bad essay and ruined your future enjoyment of a movie, please, please, please let me know. I have experience writing straight-forward new movie reviews, but classic film essays are new to me, so I’m learning as I go.  Thanks — and happy viewings!
