Hello. You’ve reached Noah Gittell, film critic and essayist. That’s me on the left. I don’t always look like that. You just happened to capture me mid-sentence. I could have chosen a better picture, but most people choose their most attractive picture for these things, and, well, I just like to be different.
I’ve written for The Atlantic, The Guardian, Slate, LA Review of Books, The Economist, Washington City Paper, Wired, GQ, Esquire, Elle, and others. This is the place for stuff that doesn’t belong at any of those places.
Hope you like it.

I agree with R rating for violent murder scenes in movies, how do we get this changed?
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.
Hi Noah, I’ve nominated you for The Liebster Award, follow the link for instructions on how to accept the award http://elementalreviews.wordpress.com/2013/07/09/the-liebster-award/
I didn’t know where to post this, so I thought I would post it here:
Crime and Punishment: A Film by Piotr Dumala
I thought it was a very good film of Dostoyevsky’s novel.
The two films you describe in eh Guardian article as not available, “The Heartbreak Kid” and “I Shot Andy Warhol” are both available on Youtube in good condition for somebody who wants to see them on a computer screen
Thanks for weighing in. I actually mentioned that, about “The Heartbreak Kid” at least, in the piece.
