Unknown Critics is an online space for a few twenty-somethings who would like to be Known Critics to cultivate their interest through reviews, columns, and musings on today’s cinema.
Suzanne Day, Editor, Webmaster, and Main Contributor
A writer and editor living in Boston, Suzanne has been writing about film on the web and in print for most of her adult life. She is largely self-taught, having never studied film in the classroom. Instead, she has learned about the art by simply watching them—lots of them, maybe 50 new titles a year. She’s also familiarized herself with the work of many Known Critics, and continues to develop her understanding of the medium every day. Suzanne holds a B.A. in English and History from Virginia Tech and an M.A. in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College.
Jeremy Clemmons, Contributor, Film Critic
Jeremy is an aspiring novelist and critic attending Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia where his focuses are English and World Studies (World Cinema). Occupying a special place in his heart at a young age, film has since then expanded into the vast terrain of Jeremy’s life experiences, receiving its force not only from those inchoate, child-like moments of being captivated by the big screen but also from the quiet reflection afterward. He is currently writing a short book on the cinema of Ross McEwlee.
Nadia Chaudhury, Main Contributor, TV Critic
Nadia is a New York-based journalist, photographer, and designer who has been obsessed with watching television ever since her younger days of oohing and ahhing at the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. She has written film and television reviews, as well as celebrity profiles. She received her B.A. from Eugene Lang College at the New School and her M.A. from Emerson College. Find out more about Nadia’s work over at her website, www.nadiachaudhury.com.
