User Review  - Perrystroika - Goodreads

Of the great film critics, Kael has probably aged the worst. Otis Ferguson, James Agee and Andrew Sarris still retain much of their felicity. Kael, on the other hand, seems capricious, stubborn and ... Read full review

User Review  - Chris Gager - Goodreads

My favorite movie critic as far as interesting prose is concerned. Maybe a bit too intellectual/analytical for what is mostly a pop entertainment form. My movie heyday was back in the sixties and ... Read full review

User Review  - Jesse - Goodreads

Kael's problem isn't that she's a contrarian, but that she's obsessed with the lonely, vigilante allure of being a contrarian (ie the madness that has overtaken Armond White). This makes for criticism ... Read full review

User Review  - Chris Schaeffer - Goodreads

the late, great Pauline Kael. This is a collection of her early, pre-New Yorker, writings about film. I have always been a Pauline Kael fan. I love the way she writes about movies -- even when I don't ... Read full review

My copy of "I Lost it at the Movies" is itself a tribute to my love of Ms. Kael's writing: purchased when I was a teenager, the binding has come apart completely so often has it been opened, and what ... Read full review
