HHH10 Interview with Richard Lawson | Vanity Fair Film Critic

In this episode of Hilah’s Happy Hour, I got to talk with Richard Lawson, the film critic for Vanity Fair! I “met” him through my YouTube channel (he wrote me up this little blurb in the March issue of VF) and now we’re Twitter buddies. We talk about how he got into the critic business, what he likes about it, what makes an “indie movie”, why the film industry is slow to change; and get a couple of summer movie recommendations.
