Moises Chiullan‘s summary of the most intriguing ’09 South by Southwest titles has me actually thinking about trying to attend this year. I’m particularly interested in catching Gerald Peary‘s For the Love of Movies, a doc about the history of American film criticism that has taken some seven years to put together. Here’s a 12.07 riff on Peary’s film by Filmmaker‘s Rob Nelson .
My only concern is Nelson’s observation that the film “scarcely if ever acknowledges [the] mounting threats to the profession.” This can’t be. Peary and producer Amy Geller must have changed their film to reflect the times in the 14 months since Nelson wrote this.
