Daniel M. Kimmel

I'm a lawyer turned film critic who loves to get his college students excited about old movies and get senior groups open to seeing new ones. My philosophy comes from George Burns: find out what you enjoy doing and get someone to pay you for it. My interest runs from romantic comedy to science fiction films (the subjects of my last two books), and also includes Hitchcock, film noir, the great westerns, Truffaut, musicals, Keaton, Wilder, and many others. In my books I try to convey my enthusiasm as well as my knowledge hoping to get the reader to want to see (or resee) the films. I am past president of the Boston Society of Film Critics and founding co-chair of the Boston Online Film Critics Association.
