In the age of in­ter­net trolls, be­ing a film critic isn’t al­ways glam­orous, but Mal­lory An­drews can go toe to toe with any trash- talker on Twit­ter. As se­nior ed­i­tor of cléo, a jour­nal of film and fem­i­nism (and “a true labour of love”), columnist at Movie Mez­za­nine, and an alum of the IndieWire Crit­ics Academy at the Lo­carno Film Festival in Switzer­land, An­drews stands out for her im­pec­ca­ble eye and in­ci­sive sex­ual pol­i­tics. She’s help­ing to even out the gen­der gap in film writ­ing— largely still a man’s game— but that doesn’t mean An­drews knows only about “fe­male in­ter­est” movies. “As I’ve come to be known for writ­ing from a fem­i­nist per­spec­tive, I tend to mostly get as­signed to re­view ‘women’s films’—but I have the skills to write about the new Scors­ese too!” she says. Make no mis­take: An­drews can talk Star Wars and slap­stick with the best of them.
