Movie Freak: A Day With Owen Gleiberman

Saturday, Mar 26, 2016

Film critic Owen Gleiberman’s funny, impassioned, eye-opening memoir of movie fanaticism, Movie Freak: My Life Watching Movies (Hachette, 2016) offers the ultimate inside view of what the life of a critic is really all about. Gleiberman writes with confessional candor about his doomed friendship with Pauline Kael and his obsessive search for pleasure and beauty, and he looks at what criticism is becoming in the new age of digital groupthink. He will present two of his favorite films, and sign books in the Moving Image Store.
