Ever wondered what makes a film critic tick? (and occasionally explode?)

Prepare for True Confessions of a Film Critic!

Since 1993 Robert Fontaine has been the film reviewer for CBC Radio One’s popular drive-home program ALL IN A DAY, and his lively, witty, and often irreverent reviews have become a highlight of the week for many CBC listeners.

True Confessions of a Film Critic presents Robert’s unique take on some of the very best — and the very worst films he has seen over the last few years, accompanying the reader on a journey through the myriad worlds of popular film, from documentary to science fiction, from horror to comedy, from the thriller to the Western; and even to the outer reaches of postmodernism and BEYOND.

About the Author

Robert Fontaine grew up in the sixties in a house where movies were woven into the family fabric — all-night marathons at the drive-in and Saturday matinee double bills were treasured family outings, eagerly anticipated and energetically discussed afterwards. In retrospect it seems inevitable that he would gravitate toward film studies and broadcasting. Robert has been a freelance writer-broadcaster for the past twenty years, reviewing films for CBC Radio and covering jazz for Radio-Canada in Ottawa. Passionate about movies and music, Robert is also a working drummer and has led his own jazz quartet since 2009. Married, he lives in Gatineau with his wife, Sylvie, and their son, David. Their large Lab mix, Buffie, enjoys light classical music and watching Wallace and Gromit cartoons.
