Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 8. May 27, 1953

A New Critic

A New Critic

I find it impossible to see all the worth-while films showing in Wellington each week, so I have roped in a co-critic. It is difficult to decide what is a film critic's Job but I shall in future confine myself to one or two pictures a week. In spite of continual opposition, I feel that a varsity newspaper should not provide a film guide, but a basis for discussion and argument. I shall therefore continue my subjective approach, in the belief that anyone's opinion is more interesting than a mere list of a film's credits. And with this belief in mind. I make the following appeal: If anyone (anyone at all) feels like expressing an impression that a film has made on him (to the film's credit or not), he should do so and his remarks will be printed in these columns (provided, of course, they, are above a certain standard). He should put the article (addressed to me) in the letter rack, before the Friday night preceding the next issue.

Now over to Brian Shaw.
