Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 13 - Critics
After a couple of off-format episodes, Shot/Reverse Shot returns to its usual form today with an episode about Critics. Initially inspired by the decade in the making Sight & Sound Top 50, we use that list as a jumping off point to talk about the pros and cons of the list itself before engaging in a more wide-ranging discussion about the role of criticism in the Internet age, before rounding things off with our customary Top 10s, which this time around consist of the greatest films ever made which do not feature in the Sight & Sound poll.
