Product description

Book Description

For the first time in paperback, veteran film critic Owen Gleiberman--best known for his twenty-four years at Entertainment Weekly--traces his life through an obsessive love of movies, beginning with a drive-in viewing of Rosemary's Baby (at the ripe old age of 9), his apprenticeship to Pauline Kael, and continuing through his life as a critic with the films that became personal and cultural touchstones.

About the Author

Owen Gleiberman is an American film critic. He wrote for The Boston Phoenix and is best known as the founding movie writer for the then-startup Entertainment Weekly, where he was the lead critic for 24 years. Today Gleiberman continues to write for BBC.com and lives in New York City with his wife Sharon and two daughters.
