Justifying my job: Do movie critics still matter?


So here I am, sitting in an overstuffed leather chair, next to four other guys in matching chairs, holding a microphone in my hand, bantering with one of the nation's best-known and most outspoken movie critics: Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly

And in the back of my head, a little voice was singing the David Byrne lyric, "Well, how did I get here?" 

Actually, I volunteered, as soon as I heard the Sundance Film Festival announced they were doing a panel discussion on the state of film criticism - a subject about which I, like most people with my job title, have strong opinions.
