You probably noticed a few design changes at test.ofcs.org. We hope you like (or at least don’t despise) the new look. The big change, however, will arrive later this week. In addition to all the links of reviews of classic movies and non-mainstream fare, we’re finally adding links to reviews of new titles, too. This will hopefully allow you to stay up-to-date with our members’ views on all the latest theatrical releases. Looking for a certain title? Wondering if your favorite OFCS member has covered a certain movie you’re thinking of watching? Don’t forget to check out the “search” bar […]

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Roderick Heath has been granted membership in the organization. Heath’s reviews appear at Ferdy on Films, etc.. Heath says: My desire in film criticism has always been to celebrate the cinema in its diversity, to explore the pleasures and mystique of good movies, and to tackle the cultural resonance of film as both an art form and a vehicle of entertainment. I love to look for signs of creativity and commitment in even the most demeaned genres, and dig as deeply as I can into the meaning of cinema’s most important works and […]
The OFCS is delighted to announce that Ali Gray has been granted membership in the organization. Gray’s reviews appear at TheShiznit.co.uk. Gray says: I’ve been writing about cinema for several years now, and TheShiznit.co.uk has existed in some form or another since 2004, but it’s only recently that it’s taken off and I’ve found likeminded writers – like those in the OFCS – to share it with. The site’s M/O is pretty loose, with regular news, reviews, editorial pieces and list-type features – but everything is written from a personal point of view. I kid myself we like to write […]

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Edward Howard has been granted membership in the organization. Howard’s reviews appear at Only the Cinema and The House Next Door.

I try to approach film from a variety of angles, and write about a wide spectrum of cinema, including foreign and independent film, avant-garde film, and classics. One of the most important values I try to maintain in my film writing is avoiding the constant emphasis on “the now,” the pressure to always write about […]
