I interviewed Matt Zoller Seitz live at Joe’s Pub. You can hear our interview by clicking HERE.
Seitz is a journalist and film and television critic. He writes well, sometimes better than the actual shows and films he covers. His encyclopedic knowledge of both film and television, palpable love for the medium, have endeared him to his peers, including the late great Roger Ebert. Like Ebert, Seitz is also a prolific writer and editor, and is currently both the Editor-in-Chief of RogerEbert.com and TV critic for New York Magazine, which means her churns out multiple reviews and features in a week.
During his spare time, he writes books. He’s the author of The Wes Anderson Collection. The first person to ever cover Anderson, Seitz is currently working on a series of companion books for Anderson’s films. Seitz is also branching out to cover Oliver Stone and some other filmmakers. All the while, he manages to watch, obsess over, and share his analysis weekly at New York Magazine and rogerebert.com. While he’s been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, this is his first time winning The Employee of the Month Award.
