When it comes to movies, everyone’s a critic. But how does an actual film critic watch a movie? In her new book, longtime Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday explores what makes a movie work or not, from the foundation of the screenplay all the way to the last step, editing. Whether you’re a film buff or a casual moviegoer, understanding each element means seeing movies in a whole new way.
