The Life of a Critic

Being a critic might sound like a rather desirable life. You get to go to films, plays, concerts or whatever free of charge all the time, you mix with the great and the good in the world of the arts and you get your name into whatever publication you write for. What could be nicer? Well, while all of this is indeed the case, and while it would be absurd for a critic to moan about having such a job, it’s certainly not all fun. There are the tight deadlines, with a piece having to be completed straight after the end of the event. And there can be repercussions, such as the backlash when a critic has given a negative review and those involved turn their fury on him or her.[/one_half]

Who Needs Critics?

A question that is sometimes asked, especially when something popular has received bad reviews is ‘What’s the point of critics?’ It’s a logical question for more than one reason. Firstly, there is that issue that many things damned by the critics gain huge popularity, suggesting that reviews are irrelevant. And, secondly, there is the view that the arts are an entirely subjective matter and nobody is in a position to pronounce something either good or bad. These are valid points, but surely critics do have a role, chiefly as informants, so that people have something to go on when they want to decide whether or not to buy or go to see something.[/one_half_last]
