(p.1) Introduction
Two Thumbs Up

Stephanie Ross

University of Chicago Press

I use Siskel and Ebert’s long-running TV show At the Movies as a springboard for a discussion of the uses to which criticism is put today. Calling out restaurant-review-style criticism, a model that Arthur Danto identifies and disparages, as especially helpful, I go on to clarify the concept of appreciation that will be in play throughout my book, present Noel Carroll’s view of criticism as reasoned evaluation, and preview the topics I will take up in the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   criticism, restaurant review, appreciation, Arthur Danto, Noel Carroll
