Writer Profiles: Glenn Kenny

We have some amazing writers, film critics and video essayists at RogerEbert.com, and as we head into the home stretch of this year, we would like to remind you of some of their work. Although we have many talented critics who contribute reviews and articles occasionally during the year, these particular profiles will highlight the work of our critics who have contributed the most reviews and/or video essays.

Thoughts on 2016 (so far):

News of the death of cinema has been greatly exaggerated!

Excerpt from Glenn's Movie Love Questionnaire (read the full Q&A here):

The legend is [I saw] "Psycho" at the age of one, sitting between my folks at the drive-in. But of course I really don't REMEMBER that. I DO remember seeing the drunk-driving-off-a-cliff business in "North by Northwest" from the back of my folks' car at a drive-in some time after that, so I guess that's the thing. It made an impression, but not enough of one to positively effect certain future life decisions.
