My Criterion Top 10: Dan Heaton


I’m running contributions from some of my favorite film critics, writers, and theorists from around the internet for a few weeks. Each writer is listing their top 10 from the Criterion Collection. Today’s list comes from Dan Heaton, the only contributor I’ve ever accidentally seen in a bar. Dan is a fellow St. Louisan and a fellow Cardinals fan. For good measure, he also graduated from the University of Missouri. This contribution might as well come with a slice of pizza from Shakespeare’s and some Ted Drewes frozen custard. Dan operates Public Transporation Snob (a clever reference to a film on his list), where he writes gobs of sharp film reviews.

He has also written movie and TV reviews for both PopMatters and Sound on Sight. He can be found on Twitter @ptsnob. Continue reading

As such, this has the potential to become a series- 100 Things I Love About Horror Movies, 100 Things I Love About Foreign Movies, and on and on. I present to you the first edition of “100 Things I Love About the Movies”.
