About Noah Gittell

Thanks for visiting Reel Change. I’m Noah Gittell, a former independent filmmaker and political campaign staffer.

By day, I am a full-time non-profit lobbyist in Washington, DC, but I spend more and more of my time writing freelance about movies. I am a regular contributor to The Atlantic, and I have also written for Salon, Washington City PaperThink Progress, RogerEbert.com, Film School Rejects and Movie Mezzanine. On this site, I write original film criticism and analysis and post the occasional guest column (submissions welcome). You may know that the film industry and the American political system have a long, intertwined history. In this space, we explore that history as it reaches up into the present.

I will probably also end up just telling you about some movies I love. To reflect a modern viewing experience, I use the following ratings system in my reviews:

  1. See it in the Theater
  2. Put it on Your Queue
  3. Skip it Altogether

You can contact me with your thoughts or submit an idea for a guest post at reelchanger1@gmail.com.

    • Hi Carol. Thanks for reading.

      I think the thing to do is call your members of Congress and ask them to push Hollywood to update their ratings system. While we may not want Congress to have full regulatory authority over Hollywood, there have been several instances in the past, where a little pressure from them has forced MPAA to self-regulate.
