Speaker’s Corner - Have your say on Movie Talk

Why not share your views with fellow Movie Talk readers?

We’d love to hear what you have to say about the movies or stars you feel passionate about – whether it’s adoration or loathing. What are the films or actors you love but other people sneer at? Let us know your favourite movie memory (perhaps of seeing a film in an unusual setting: The Beach on a beach or Cinema Paradiso in a cinema that was heavenly). Tell us if you stumble upon a film crew in the middle of a shoot. Or simply take the opportunity to sound off about any movie-related topic that takes your fancy.

Set your thoughts down (between 200 and 600 words is ideal) and send them, with Speaker’s Corner in the subject line, to movietalk@ipcmedia.com.

It’s over to you.

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
