Criticism & Reviews

A Film Review is generally an article that is published in an online or print newspaper, magazine, or scholarly work that describes and evaluates a film. A review often offers an opinion or focuses on making a recommendation. 

Film Criticism is generally written by an expert in film studies or film scholar. The criticism often presents the film within a specific context (theoretical, social, political or historical) while drawing on a larger dialog and positioning their argument within the field.
