Short orders: film writing
In Short Orders, politically radical and socially aware film critic Jonathan Romney collects selected film reviews and articles from the New Stateman and Society, Sight & Sound, The Guardian and elsewhere. Romney visits art houses, mulitiplexes, and everything in between to chronicle the end of cinema's first century, Hollywood's entry into the digital age, and the dying reign of the "real" on screen. Filmmakers discussed include: Abel Ferrera, Ridley Scott, Brad Silberling, Michael Bay, Bernardo Bertolucci, Warren Beatty, James Ivory, Louis Malle, Sally Potter, Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese, and more.
