"It was a proud moment for me a few years back when I learned I was the recipient of the School of the Arts Film Program Andrew Sarris Award. In a funny way, he was the man most responsible for my interest in film. When I was in my last year of high school, I discovered his landmark book The American Cinema, which I carried around with me everywhere, combing through his appreciations of Pantheon Directors as if they were gospel. At a certain point I was convinced I wanted to be a foot soldier in Sarris’ army and do battle against Pauline Kael and her followers.
