Missing expensive wines or simply be a Moroccan film critic


 Khribga film festival reveals controversial matters as far as film critics is   concerned.Damoun, a respected film critic says something dangerous about the list of winning films .He states, "we know , as we go through the list of films participating in our festivals  and from the beginning who is going to win and who will get the first prize".

            I feel ashamed to hear about this statement and fortunately I do not want to be a film critic, but I am concerned about mentalities of our film critics. Take for example one of the best film critic in France ,Pierre Murat .This French plume admits that he was a bad teacher ,but he tries criticizing films and  now he is good at this job. It is as simple as it sounds.

Why can not Ahmed Boughaba, x-journalist; Omar Ait Mokhtar x-something or simply
Moroccan film critics coming from college and universities admit that they are called just to fill the gap.  They do not dare to that because they do not want to miss Luxury hotels and expensive wines, may be I hope I am wrong

Pierre along with Damoun teach us  how honest they are what is true film critics by just saying that a film critic is passeur between him and the auteur .His role is to discover just little tiny things in films and then he must criticize in a objective way. So many film critics because they lack sense of sharing passions with cinema goers , they try to make ugly views in order to break down morals of good films and that's why many film makers just do not like to follow critics coming from those mentioned before. A film critic must reveal his point of view as far techniques and professionalism of the films seen by him.
