Critical Failure: Film

Listen to Critical Failure: Film

Have our film critics lost their way or merely their page space? And how should we be reviewing - and making - films in Australia?

In a discussion led by Peter Mares, critics Adrian Martin, Mel Campbell and Fenella Kernebone and filmmaker Gillian Armstrong interrogate the place of the film critic in our cultural landscape. Together they address where reviewing ends and criticism begins, the influence of commerce and readership, the particular roles that online publishing can play, and how we can move towards a robust critical culture that rewards audiences and filmmakers alike.
