Biography: Tom O’Brien is an old grouch. After getting an M.F.A. in film criticism at Columbia University (including two years of jousting with professor Andrew Sarris), Tom embarked at what turned out to be a four-decade career in television (oh, the stories!). Now, he has returned to his first love, film criticism, writing industry stories for Gold Derby, podcasts for Next Best Picture and opinionated film reviews at Exact Change Today.
