More About the Author

Karen Krizanovich is a writer and broadcaster, American voiceover artist and presenter based in London, Glasgow and around the world.

She's been published in The Times, Reader's Digest, The Sunday Times Style, Red, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Guardian Film Blog, Elle, T3, The Daily Mail on relationships and social mores, Entertainment Weekly and Cosmopolitan among many others. Broadcasts include BBC1 Breakfast News, ITV's 'This Morning', BBC Radio 4′s 'Woman's Hour', BBCR4′s 'The Film Programme', LBC Radio, Monocle Radio and BBC2′s 'The Review Show'. Karen has appeared on over 75 different TV shows, including CNN and Newsnight, with live outside broadcasts from the Cannes Film Festival - an incomplete list is online at IMDb. Karen conceived, researched and presented Whistledown Production/BBC Radio 4's groundbreaking original radio documentary entitled Svelte Sylvia and the Hollywood Trimsters. 'Sylvia of Hollywood' was Tinsel Town's greatest fitness/beauty expert yet she was wiped from history until this documentary and the Wikipedia page built by Karen from her own research brought Sylvia back to life. In December 2011, Karen also presented a look at the late Helen Gurley Brown's milestone book Sex & The Single Girl for BBC Radio 4 along with an accompanying article on the BBC News main website and an appearance on BBC Radio 4′s Woman's Hour.

With a BA in Philosophy of Mind and an MBA in Film Finance, Karen is active in development and script reporting with an interest in film business and film news across all media. She reviews films for Monocle, Radio Times, Virgin Media and The Arts Desk. Her written reviews, including early work for Empire, are aggregated at Rotten Tomatoes.

Karen is a member of the exclusive London Film Critics' Circle, Alliance of Women Film Journalists and is a jury associate for the international film critics' association FIPRESCI.

A popular host for Q&A sessions and film-related talks, Karen appeared most recently for the London Screenwriters' Festival, the London Comedy Writers' Festival, the NFT/BFI, First Light's Fever Pitch/London Film Festival, the Barbican Cinema and for the Curzon Cinema.

In the 90s, Karen was Dear Karen, the sarcastic Agony Aunt of Sky Magazine's must-read comedic advice page. Dear Karen's past posts are beginning to be archived at dear-karen.tumblr.com and Twitter posts @Dear_Karen_.

Review

'A quirky take on the presentation of film facts, this guide is perfect for picking up lots of film trivia and (possibly) retaining it through the use of illustrations, spidergrams and other mind-mappping devices.' --The Bookseller

Format: Hardcover
My daughter is taking a GCSE in film studies and she loved this book. It's beautifully illustrated and while not all of the graphics impart new information (others make smart points) they all look great and reward time spent studying them. I'm not sure what the previous reviewer has against the author, but as far as I can tell she came up with ideas and found data that was then turned into graphics for the numerous illustrators to lay out the words, figures and information as weirdly and beautifully as they have. The different styles of graphic add variety and surprise to the book. The scope of movies covered in terms of age and genre are also great -- my daughter loved the Ryan Gosling graphic and says she's looked up some of the older names online, so it's getting her more interested in different styles of cinema, which can only be good.

Liked everything about this book, very colourful, easy to understand (unlike some infographics books, which, ironically have TOO much information). Unfortunately out of date as soon as it goes to print, however still pretty up to date.

This book certainly is content rich and engaging with the great infographics although it suffers from Hollywoods quick turnover (some of the facts are already outdated, but thats to be expected). Perfect gift for anyone really.

Great collection of movie related infographics, an easy way to lose an hour and good to return to later too. A hit with all the family and friends who pick it up.
