film criticism by maryann johanson | since 1997

curated: Jimmy Breslin on the NYPD cops who drove a dying John Lennon to the hospital

The iconic New York newspaper columnist died this weekend. I used to read his work all the time in Newsday (which was my essential local NYC paper before the Internet, when that’s how you got the news), and sometimes in the Daily News. I feel like he had a definite influence on my own writing, on how to figure out what’s the unexpected angle to take on whatever you’re writing about, and on how to be personal about it and unafraid to put yourself into it.
