Hatchet Job: Love Movies, Hate Critics with Mark Kermode

Sunday 15th June 2014 1pm - 2pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event

Mark Kermode, the UK's most trusted (and scathing) film reviewer asks: who needs the professionals now that everyone's a critic? For decades, the backbone of film criticism has been the hatchet job - the entertaining trashing of a film by professional reviewers, seen by many as cynical snobs. But with movie posters now just as likely to be adorned by Twitter quotes as old-fashioned reviewer recommendations, has the rise of enthusiastic amateurism sounded the death knell of a profession? Mark Kermode will be in conversation with his longstanding collaborator, TV and radio producer, Nick Jones.

Mark Kermode will also be officially opening our new Film and Drama departments at 12 noon: click here to book your free place
