Film critic Peter Rainer's new book, "Rainer on Film: Thirty Years of Film Writing in a Turbulent and Transformative Era"
Peter Rainer has been a film critic for 30 years. In his book, “Rainer on Film: Thirty Years of Film Writing in a Turbulent and Transformative Era,” Rainer gives an extensive history of films, directors, actors and more.
This nearly 550-page book includes some of his reviews, his take on the best and worst films and how film and the players involved have grown ... for better or for worse. Rainer joins AirTalk to discuss why he thinks "Fight Club" and "Zero Dark Thirty" are overrated and which films are underseen.
Is he right? What’s on your overrated and underseen lists? Do you follow the work of any particular directors or actors? Let us know in the comments.
