“Film was always a shared thing within my family; I still credit my parents for much of what I look for in a film today. As a critic, I want to be able to recreate that feeling for others, that sensation that you are now being let in on something entirely special, a wholly unique emotional vessel.”
Patrick Preziosi is a graduate of Literature (BA) from the State University of New York at Purchase. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Patrick began pursuing film criticism after a foray into music criticism.
Patrick has written on film for Little White Lies, Metrograph Edition, Photogénie, The Purchase Phoenix and the Irish Film Critic. He was part of the 'Young Critics Workshop' at Film Fest Gent 2018, writing under the mentorship of Nick Pinkerton (Film Comment, Sight & Sound).
Fascinated by the formal aspects of film and genre, and the different ways in which emotion can be conveyed, Patrick’s film tastes vary from the highbrow to the pulpiest.
