My Criterion Top 10: Lauren Humphries-Brooks


Today marks the first contribution to the Criterion Top 10 Series. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be running contributions from some of my favorite film critics, writers, and theorists from around the internet. Each writer will list their top 10 from the Criterion Collection, mirroring Criterion’s own Top 10 series. Today’s article comes from firebrand writer Lauren Humphries-Brooks. Lauren is a self-proclaimed Angry Movie Girl and an aficionado of The Avengers (the British TV show, not the film and/or comic book characters). Her writing is a brilliant balance of film theory, film criticism, and raw enthusiasm, in particular for classic horror. I highly recommend that you find her film writing at Man, I Love Films; We Got This CoveredThe Artifice; and her own blog, Suddenly, a Shot Rang Out. You may also find her on Twitter- @lhbizness.
