by Kenneth Turan
     
 


"Kenneth Turan is a critic's critic, one who covers the movie industry and reviews the marketplace without ever abandoning his taste, passion or erudition. What a perfect guide to that modern phenomenon, the film festival, about which the public thinks it knows so much and actually is permitted to know so little."—B.

Overview


"Kenneth Turan is a critic's critic, one who covers the movie industry and reviews the marketplace without ever abandoning his taste, passion or erudition. What a perfect guide to that modern phenomenon, the film festival, about which the public thinks it knows so much and actually is permitted to know so little."—B. Ruby Rich, author of Chick Flicks

"Every film festival I attend, there's Ken Turan, notebook in hand, big smile, racing to the next film. We always synchronize our watches. Ken touted me on the official film critic's model, the Timex Indiglo, which has great big numbers and lights up in the dark, so you can see how long an endless film has been running. Now I see why he was taking all those notes. His Sundance to Saravejo is smart, sometimes funny, sometimes appalled, always perceptive—an insider's report from the cutting edge."—Roger Ebert
