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.
