Manny Farber Dies at 91

One of San Diego's most unique voices in art and film criticism died on Monday. Manny Farber was 91 and one of the 20th century's greatest film critics, an influential artist, and a professor at UCSD. Franklin Bruno wrote a great piece about him in The Believer a few years ago.   Here are the thoughts of Village Voice film critic J. Hoberman.  I admire Hoberman's writing a great deal so it makes sense now knowing that Farber was so influential for him.  We'll be doing a remembrance on These Days tomorrow.  I'll post the interview right after the show. ( here it is )  So sad....
