The /Filmcast: After Dark – Ep. 80 – Thoughts on Avatar and the Future of Film Criticism (GUEST: Anne Thompson from Indiewire)
Posted on Sunday, December 20th, 2009 by David Chen
The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, Dave Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Adam Quigley discuss the technological advancements of Avatar, clarify Anne Thompson’s claim that film criticism is a dying art, and reflect on the future of sites such as ours. Also, here’s the Avatar/Fern Gully mashup that Dave refers to (embedded after the break). Special guest Anne Thompson joins us from Indiewire.
