You know there’s no such thing as “just a movie,” and you enjoy thinking about film in big-picture, cultural-zeitgeisty ways. This is how you can support my work doing that.

You get exclusive subscriber-only content that may include:
  • rundowns new releases and hidden gems on the streaming services, to make the most of your screen time (never spend an hour scrolling through Netflix again!)
  • essays examining the cinematic zeitgeist
  • DVD audio commentaries
  • maybe more to come?

About MaryAnn Johanson

I'm a pioneering online film critic, at FlickFilosopher.com since 1997. Starting to dabble in fiction that people who like my criticism (geeky, feminist, progressive) might enjoy. I'm a full-time freelancer dedicated to my writing and offering a perspective underserved in the mainstream.

All donations go to such luxuries as rent, groceries, the usual junk writers waste their money on.

Most of this material is also available via my Substacks: click here for the general Flick Filosopher one, and click here for the fiction one. (There may be some specialized movie ones coming soon — I’m thinking on how much time I have to make them happen. They will be matched by new tiers here at Patreon.) The big difference is that here, at Patreon, you get email notifications of all new reviews I post (if you’ve set up your Patreon account to send you those emails, that is). By contrast, the free version of the general Flick Filosopher Substack is a once-weekly email digest of the week’s new reviews (which, of course, you could also sign up for even if you’re a patron here). So it’s a matter of which platform you’re more comfortable with, and whether you want a slightly more or slightly less curated experience.

(If you prefer to make a one-time donation, you can PayPal me. But you’ll miss out on the Patreon bonuses.)
