The OFCS is delighted to announce that Paul Brenner has been granted membership in the organization. Brenner’s reviews appear at Filmcritic.com.
I have had a burning interest in cinema ever since I saw Jerry Lewis with a pith helmet and an elephant gun in Who’s Minding the Store? From that point on, my youth was misspent on watching everything from Won Ton Ton: The Dog Who Saved Hollywood to Weekend. My first film review was for F. for Fake and one thing led to another and I ended up receiving a Master’s degree in TV, Radio & Film from Northwestern University. Since that time, I have written for print publications such as The Motion Picture Guide, Magill’s Survey of Foreign Language Cinema, and The Encyclopedia of Film. Online publications have included Mediascreen.com, AOL’s Critics Choice, The All Movie Guide and Filmcritic.com. At one point, I even worked on the pre-production of an orangutan comedy in Hollywood USA. My critical hero is Manny Farber and my wish is to be as cool as Robert Mitchum and as sarcastic as Groucho Marx.
The OFCS welcomes Brenner as a member.
