New from Every Movie Has a Lesson by Don Shanahan: MEDIA APPEARANCE: David Ehrlich’s IndieWire Critics Survey on January 21, 2019

Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work.  Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle members and Aaron White of Feelin’ Film, accepted the invitation to participate.  I’m honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.  


THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: What is Samuel L. Jackson’s best performance?

This second survey of the year rode the Glass wave from last weekend with the turn of Samuel L. Jackson’s “Mr. Glass” character from Unbreakable. The question was asked to name his best performance. Picking Pulp Fiction was a no-doubter for me. He’s electric and he was robbed of the Oscar. If I had a second place vote, it would go to Jackie Brown. Quentin Tarantino puts the best words in that icon’s mouth.
