Movie Reviews by Waitsel Smith, film critic, author and writer

I love movies. I majored in film criticism at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in the early 1970s, with plans to become a film director; but because the industry was going through difficult times and had bleak prospects for the future, I switched to art. Today my involvement is mostly to write about it, both from the perspective of criticism and scriptwriting. I hope you enjoy my articles and that you learn to love film as much as I.
