ABOUT DENNIS SCHWARTZ
Dennis has been a prolific online movie reviewer since 1998, also contributing to publications all over the globe and maintaining an active website. The first film Dennis saw as a child, Bob Hope’s Paleface, left a hunger for films that has not been sated with all the passing years. The critic who influenced him the most was Walter Benjamin, not a film critic but one of the truly great literary critics of the 20th century. The lesson to be learned from him and other serious critics is that all true art is subversive and unsettling.
Favorite Films: Tokyo Story, Dead Man, Wichita, The Killing, In A Year of 13 Moons.
