This year, TNR's esteemed film critic, Stanley Kauffmann, celebrates his 50th anniversary with the magazine. To honor Stanley and his illustrious career, we have created a site, featuring exclusive interviews with senior editor Ruth Franklin, choice reviews from the archives, excerpts from his autobiography, and more! We'll also be posting each video on The Plank over the next few months.
To start us off, Kauffmann reveals how he fell into the world of film criticism. This one might surprise you.
