New Yorker: Movie of the Week

The Front Row: Notes on the Cinema is a column by Richard Brody for The New Yorker. In addition to reviews and musings about film, Brody (and producer Monica Račić) run a weekly blog and video podcast, Movie of the week (formerly DVD of the Week).

Started in March 2009 with Joe Swanberg's Hannah Takes the Stairs as a sidebar to David Denby's article on "mumblecore". Brody has continued this column to this day, commenting on classic, modern, foreign, and domestic films. You can find the video podcast in iTunes or on the website: www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/movies/
