About Anne

Anne Brodie began her movie diary and letters to the stars at age 5. She is positively blessed to work in her beloved industry as a reviewer, interviewer, producer and reporter in print, online and broadcast. Brodie has interviewed thousands of celebrities and filmmakers, from David Lynch, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, the Twilight kids, Elizabeth Taylor, Nicole Kidman, Mick Jagger, Madonna, three Beatles, Helen Mirren, Javier Bardem to Jim Carrey.  She would like to have interviewed Katharine Hepburn, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, George Stevens, Jean Harlow and James Dean and hopes to interview Lars Von Trier if he comes out of hiding.

Brodie currently reviews and interviews for SiriusXM Radio "What She Said", the formidable Metro News Canada, Monsters and Critics, and chats up the latest H'wood product on Studio 12 News (Corus/CBC) and edits and contributes to Mrs. Robinson, a fancy site for 40-plus women.

Brodie is Chair of the Film Festival Committee of the Los Angeles-based Broadcast Films Critics' Association, the largest film critics' group in North America. She is a member of the Toronto Film Critics' Association, FIPRESC, the International Federation of Film Critics, and the Alliance of Women Film Journalists and frequently covers international film festivals.

Brodie continues to be amazed by the talent, artistry, humanity and scope of movie and the moviemakers. And she knows that like cockroaches after the nuclear blast and Lemmy, movies are forever.
