Film Reviews - February 2011

February - I’d like to thank…

It’s awards season on the movie beat, and that means it’s the time of year when, among other things, the people who win the little globes and statuettes take a look back at their lives and thank the people who helped them get to this point in their careers.

The closing of this newspaper may not be quite such a happy occasion, but it does give me a chance to look back at the last quarter-century and thank a few of the people who have made writing about film from a faith perspective so much fun.
