My name is Thomas Caldwell and I am a writer, broadcaster, lecturer, public speaker and programmer. I specialise in film criticism and educational writing on film. I’m based in Melbourne, Australia.
I am the weekly film critic on the Breakfasters and I produce and co-host the weekly film criticism show Plato’s Cave, both on Triple R (3RRR 102.7FM). I appear monthly on Books and Arts Daily on ABC Radio National to discuss book to film adaptations. I have previously appeared on 103.9 WRCN (New York, USA), JOY 94.9, ABC 774, 3AK, and Channel 31.
I’m the author of the secondary school textbook Film Analysis Handbook and my film reviews, articles and interviews have appeared in The Age, The Big Issue, Overland, Senses of Cinema, Metro and Screen Education. I won the Ivan Hutchinson Award for Writing on Australian Film in the 2010 Australian Film Critics Association (AFCA) Writing Awards.
Cinema Autopsy is a collection of nearly everything I have written on film.
