Molly Haskell and Andrew Sarris  April 12, 2008

Andrew Sarris and Molly Haskell are two of the most influential American film critics. Sarris's book The American Cinema introduced the auteur theory to American readers, establishing the idea that a director's personality is the key artistic influence on a film. With her book From Reverence to Rape: The Treatment of Women in the Movies, Haskell introduced a new perspective to the hermetic world of film criticism, writing lucidly about art and sexual politics. Sarris and Haskell, who are also husband and wife, spoke to a group of aspiring critics at the Moving Image Institute in Film Criticism.
