L Magazine has just named Reverse Shot's Nick Pinkerton one of the Top 5 Film Critics in New York. We couldn't agree more with their vote, or their assessment of his writing. Though they failed to mention the dashing 'stache, impeccable taste in music and his superhuman ability to wear cream seersucker. Nick found our very first printed 'zine three years ago, contacted us, and quickly became an essential part of Reverse Shot and a great pal.

Congrats, Nick!

    Dude rips off our IM convos and gets a mention in a magazine for it? LOL!

    Congrats, Nick.

    I feel it's worth noting that Mr. Pinkerton has never in his life worn seersucker; the only cream-colored accoutrement he owns is in cashmere. Get your couture straight.

    I'm sure that were Mr. Pinkerton here, he would thank you sincerely for your kind words, but alas, there is only me. Filmenthusiast2000. Who is not him.

    Let's not rest until we've got 3 of the Top 5.

    With Nick's writing now appearing all over the place, people are finally starting to see the truth. There are few writers these days, outside of Kent Jones, as good at pinpointing what makes a film tick. Incredibly honest, unbiased, dauntingly detailed, and propulsively entertaining writing. We're all in awe.

    That is so fucking sexy.

    Congrats, Nick.

    Clearly not a surprise to any of us who have spent time arguing, drinking, meandering, im'ing, picking our nose, ending sentences with broseph and lolocaust, drinking more, burping, frequenting RS and RS related BBQ's, and attending movies with your bad self.

    Great that someone is finally pointing this factoid out.

    The FUTURE of film criticism in your hands, friend. Fondle it.
