The Reader's comprehensive-ish film review index

9 comments

The Chicago Reader is one of the few alternative newsweeklies in the nation that still publishes long-form film criticism, and over the past 40 years we've presented work by such talented writers as Noah Berlatsky, Fred Camper, Cliff Doerksen, Andrea Gronvall, J.R. Jones, Joshua Katzman, Dave Kehr, Patrick Z. McGavin, Jonathan Rosenbaum, Ben Sachs, Lee Sandlin, Hank Sartin, Bill Stamets, Elizabeth Tamny, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, and Albert Williams. The index below isn't complete yet—we've made it only as far back as 1993—but we plan to keep adding to it until it is.
