What is the point of criticism? What separates a movie review from a piece of film criticism? How are television reviews like book reviews? In this educational documentary, 21 renowned music critics, television critics, film critics and books critics share the secrets of their craft. Interspersed with their stories are media clips to illustrate their ideas.

The film depicts how the best popular criticism uses the same skills of critical thinking employed by academicians. Critics in the film write for major news organizations. Three of them are recipients of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for criticism.

The DVD can be viewed in one sitting or various chapters can be used as part of teaching modules.
