We are two guys who go to the theatre a couple of times a week and then sit down at Smith College TV Studio and conduct an autopsy of the film we've seen. The procedure is often funny (just as with any real corpse) and sometimes insightful, despite our efforts. But it also gets a bit messy where there's movie blood and guts everywhere. But we always strive to be irreverently relevant.
We welcome your feedback on the reviews -- good, bad, or ugly.
A bit more about us: Kevin Taylor Anderson is a lecturer in anthropology and film studies at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Salman Hameed is associate professor of integrated science & humanities at Hampshire College, and when not watching movies, he blogs about science & religion at Irtiqa.
How long is each film autopsy?
Our film autopsies are about 7 minutes long (we can bore you for only so long). However, sometimes we decide to take a chainsaw to analyze a film, and these Chainsaw autopsies are usually under 3 minutes in length. The type of autopsies have no correlation with the quality of films. We also sometimes exhume a not-so-recent film. These film exhumations are about 10 minutes long.
