Last week Daniel Kasman asked Andrew Grant and me if we would like to interview Gavin Smith, Editor-in-Chief of Film Comment, with him. We agreed. Now you can read the interview right here. I didn't ask many questions but, I must say, it was an illuminating meeting. Lots on insight provided on the thought process behind the annual Selects series of films programmed at Lincoln Center as well as the organization of Film Comment magazine. I especially hope you brave the length of the piece so you get to my question about the role of advocacy in criticism, but we do understand that this thing is long.
