J. Hoberman

"Film critic J. Hoberman (Jim to friends, Jimmy to cousins and a few aging relatives) was born in Brooklyn, brought home to Manhattan (a block from the still extent Third Avenue El), and schooled in the depths of Queens (Francis Lewis ’66). His brand-new baby boom high school was on triple session during senior year, so he was out by 12:30 to take the E, F, or 7 into the city to go to movies at MoMA or wander around the Village. He first saw Chelsea Girls in the basement of a midtown skyscraper. ..."
