Back in the saddle again: Intelligent Life's new film critic

The Economist's award-winning Intelligent Life magazine has invited me to become their new film critic and I have gladly accepted. “I am delighted that Tom has agreed to join us,” said Intelligent Life’s editor, Tim de Lisle. “He is admired on both sides of the Atlantic as a writer with a deep love of the movies and one of the sharpest voices in arts journalism.” Readers of this blog will know that I've written — and linked to — pieces for them in the past, most recently a travel piece about New York: Being There and an article about what happens When Novelists Sober Up. I've also written career profiles of Gary Oldman, Donald Sutherland, Martin Scorsese, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Matt Damon. I urge American readers to check out this "terrific" (Tina Brown) and "fabulous" (The Daily Telegraph) magazine here.

  1. Congratulations. Though I'm not a fan of the Economist, I am a fan of yours, and it will be good to have longer, more frequent pieces. As brief as your posts here are, you're still the best film critic in the States right now. And now that I think about it, Intelligent Life is a good name for a magazine. Best of luck.
