Glenn Kenny

Glenn Kenny was chief film critic for Premiere from 1999 to 2007, and for MSN Movies from 2010 to 2013. At Premiere he also commissioned and edited work from Martin Amis, Tony Kushner, and David Foster Wallace, among others. His book "Anatomy of an Actor: Robert De Niro" will be published by Cahiers du Cinema in Spring of 2014. He has acted in Steven Soderbergh's "The Girlfriend Experience" and Preston Miller’s "God’s Land." The accompanying portrait of him hoisting a small child is a transparently vain and pathetic attempt to appear ingratiating. Read his answers to our Movie Love Questionnaire here.
