Coming Attractions: Announcing N1FR

We’re very pleased to announce the imminent launch of N1FR, our new online film review. If you subscribe to our RSS feed, you may already have seen a preview of the issue. If not, you’ll have to wait until next week.

But we can tell you now that N1FR is edited by n+1 film critic A. S. Hamrah, and that this first issue features ten new essays and reviews. Check back for Chris Fujiwara on film criticism, Benjamin Kunkel on Lucrecia Martel’s Headless Woman, and Elizabeth Gumport on Kick-Ass; reviews of the work of Pedro Costa, Claire Denis, and Judd Apatow; a film column by A. S. Hamrah; and essays on cineplex-hopping, “aggro indies,” and Ben Maraniss on the action-film/MTV nexus of the 1980s.

We’ll launch the issue this coming Monday the 23rd and feature a new review each day for the next two weeks.

To whet your appetite in the meantime, here are A. S. Hamrah’s most recent film columns:
