We are excited to announce that local film critic Robert Horton is joining the Reel NW team for a second season. In season one, Robert interviewed several local filmmakers. This year, he will be talking to directors once again, as well as writing articles for our blog, including a regular feature called Robert Horton Recommends. These posts will be Robert’s recommendations for other independent films you might like if you like the kind of films seen on Reel NW. We look forward to having Robert share his critical insight and cinematic knowledge.
Here’s a little more about Robert:
Robert Horton has spent over 25 years writing and talking about film. A University of Washington grad, he reviews movies for the Herald in Everett and KUOW-FM in Seattle, as well as a number of national publications. His books on film include Billy Wilder: Interviews and the upcoming Frankenstein, and he co-authors the comic book Rotten. A regular TV guest on the Seattle Channel, Robert also curates the Magic Lantern, a film-discussion series at the Frye Art Museum, and blogs about film at the Crop Duster.
