The Los Angeles Film Review has gone through many changes since we launched a few years ago. As people came and went, our focus has changed, but our commitment to filmed entertainment has never wavered. While we had collectively aspired to be the voice of the entertainment technician, we ended up simply reviewing films.

But, at the end of the day, it’s the films that matter the most. The magic of the silver screen, the escape from the day to day, that brief moment when a few hundred strangers can get together in a dark room and share a laugh or their darkest fears without a hint of self-consciousness. It’s one of the most powerful art-forms ever created and when it’s done right, it can change the world.

The LAFR mission is to honor that art-form in all of its shapes and sizes. From the indie to the blockbuster, LAFR is about filmed entertainment.
