Death of the Critic Poster

"Death of the Critic" was the title for a film conference put on by the Brehm Center. The event featured several speakers discussing the future of film criticism after blogs, social media and other "amateur" outlets have potentially rendered them irrelevant. The illustration invites the viewer to question whether the critic's "professionalism" saves or sinks its future occupation. Check the little caligraphy pen formed by the character's vest crop.
