I’m lucky enough to be one of Roger Ebert’s few Far-Flung Correspondents (the youngest one, in fact!)
Ebert desribes the Foreign Correspondents blog as “a feature of Roger Ebert’s Journal in which film commentators from all over the world will contribute their video reviews, observations, musings, philosophies and pronouncements. In the wings are fine critics from Canada, Egypt, India, Mexico, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan and Uruguay. These voices are not often heard on internet sites serving U.S. movie lovers. They’ve added immeasurably to the quality of the discussions on my blog.”
So far, I’ve written three articles for his blog.
The links are below 🙂
- It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the superhero genre! He later quoted my article in his Great Movies review of ‘Superman’. He told me that my article ‘got him thinking’ about including ‘Superman’ in his Great Movies. He said, ‘I am in admiration of your writing. Your writing is fluid, not labored. It has a voice. Some writers work a lifetime and never find a voice. I’m proud to consider you one of my Correspondents.’
- Dear Mr. Robert Zemeckis Sir (Ebert said of the article, ‘Lovely stuff… it’s a beauty.’)
- Dreams and films and dreams (Ebert said of the article, ‘Very, very well thought-out and expressed. I’m proud to post it.’)
Before I became one of his Far-Flung Correspondents, he featured my videos on his site right here.
More recently, he featured my work here. On that page, he said of me, “Krishna is surely one of the most gifted young filmmakers on the internet.” 🙂
After seeing my short film “Photographs”, which he thought was “extraordinary”, he featured it here.
