Mark Kermode will be touring our cinemas with his new book Hatchet Job: Love Movies, Hate Critics
The UK's most trusted and most outspoken film critic, Mark Kermode, returns to the stage with his unique blend of ranting and analysis.
For decades, the backbone of movie reviewing has been the hatchet job: the entertaining trashing of a film by professional reviewers who are seen by some as cynical snobs. Now, with the arrival of the internet, have the critics themselves fallen under the axe?
But are the democratic platforms of the internet really more reliable than the old gripes and prejudices of the critical establishment?
And what kind of films would we have if we listened to what audiences think they want?
Expect trenchant opinion, hilarious autobiographical anecdotes, passionate personal prejudices, entertaining diversions and scathing, sardonic humour.
Mark will be answering questions from the audience and there will be a chance to have your copy of the book signed by him.
