In a world filled with pretentious film critics and reviewers, Baradwaj Rangan comes across as a honest film critic and is someone whose reviews and criticism I’ve liked reading.
It is something I look forward to reading every week, even though I might not agree with his views all the time. His depth of understanding and passion for the medium shows distinctly in his posts. Quite often the length of his posts show how engaged he was in the film.
One interesting thing about following his blog posts is the amount of active interaction that happens in the comments. He actively moderates and replies to reader comments. You often more insight into the movie by reading the comments than the post itself.
