  • What length on the memories? An essay's worth of memories?

    What is the max and min length of the essays?

    Would you like more of a scholarly or informal essay?

    Indepth or movie like a Roger Ebert style?

  • I've have a blurb about Mildred Pierce at my blog.

    Here's the link to that post:

  • The goal of these essays are either to suggest a film someone may or may not have seen or to spark a nostalgic feeling for a favorite film one hasn't seen in some time.

    As far as word count goes, I like to see no more than 500 words and a minimum of 150.

    I don't want an indepth Ebert- style-review, where one states the pluses and minuses and gives a full synopsis. I like to see a strong plug for the film and why it is so loved.

    The memory essays should talk of how the viewer feels watching the film. The reviews are solely positive and states something about what makes the film special or stand out in a crowd.

  • I'd love to have something similar to your Mildred Pierce post, slanted to the guidelines I specified here. I need a contributor profile for you however, before we can proceed. The link is in the sidebar of the home page.
