This blog is a direct reaction to the Oscar nominated films of 2013. It has been a great year for movies and is an exciting time for film criticism. Our mission statement for this blog is simple and succinct:

  •  Apply a theoretical analysis to popular films
  •  Pay our respect to the medium of cinema
  •  Place current films in a contextual framework 
  •  Inspire conversation 
  •  Not be too wanky 

We will be writing reviews of all of the big Academy Award contenders and posting them one at at time  after the ceremony. We hope that this will be as engaging as popular criticism, yet with a historical film studies umbrella...
