I wasn't paying attention...

... and so I entirely overlooked the fact that the great Stanley Kauffmann died last fall, at the remarkable age of 97.

I originally started reading The New Republic when I was in college, but it changed over the years (or perhaps I changed?) and I stopped reading it.

But for more than 5 years after I had stopped reading The New Republic, I still subscribed to it, solely to read Kauffmann's work.

He was, in my opinion, the greatest film critic of all time (with great respect to Roger Ebert, Pauline Kael, etc.).
