In episode #1 of The Cinephiliacs, Peter sits down with the former Premiere and current MSN Movies chief film critic Glenn Kenny to talk about his life reviewing movies. Glenn discusses his early childhood reading about films he never thought he would see, his days as a minor rock star and music critic, and eventually finding his way to Premiere. The two also explore his habit of policing bad criticism, his issues with Joe Swanberg, and his relationship with David Foster Wallace. Finally, they get into the Michelangelo Antonioni film, Blow-Up, examining how it refutes categorization (and how Antonioni turns a photo shoot into cinema’s greatest sex scene).
