Perhaps one of the most underrated yet highly sensitive jobs is that of a film critic. The film industry tends to have a very aversive attitude towards critics for the belief that their reviews and ratings are spoiling the chances at the box office and audience mindset.
Keeping that aside, the big question now coming up is, what is the importance of serious film critics today. With the evolution of Facebook and other social media platforms, is there any value to serious film critics? Hundreds of film reviews are coming.
People are no longer waiting for reviews from big critics and nobody is reading the matter also. The reason for that is, everybody has become a critic and they have begun giving importance to their opinion. Well, this should dilute the angst of cine folks against critics now.
