Tributes: Andrew Sarris

Friday, June 22, 2012

Film critics may seem almost interchangeable these days, but that was never the case with Andres Sarris. First, at The Village Voice, and then at The New York Observer, he championed auteur directors like Truffaut, Ophuls, Godard, Bergman, and Kurosawa – with style and an acerbic edge.  We were lucky to have had him on as a guest over the years, before his recent death at the age of 83.  And you can hear a 1992 and a 1998 interview with Leonard now.
