Hatchet Job: Love Movies, Hate Critics with Mark Kermode
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.
