Echoes in the Cinema

Film Comment has the reputation of being one of the best film journals in the English language. That means that the producers of this podcast often have access to some of the best filmmakers in the business. What's frustrating, however, is the smug and often peurile opinions and attitudes envinced by many of the critics invited to speak. Too often the podcast is undergraduate in the worst sense - insular, self-indulgent and pretentious - and it can have the feel of listening in to people congratulate themselves on sharing the same aesthetics, fashion and politics. It needs a greater variety of voices and it needs more contributions by people who love film more than they love film theory.
