Part 1 of a New Interview… at Culture.ish.

Jason Panella interviewed me for a website called culture.ish.

Part One of our conversation was posted this week. Bookmark it so you can go back later, for Part Two.

Here are Panella’s questions:

  • When did you first realize the importance of taking a critical/thoughtful approach to viewing films?
  • How did you end up as a film reviewer? What is the role of the film critic?

Those are challenging pitches to hit, but I took a couple of good swings. You be the judge as to whether I scored any points.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
