For over a decade, The Pink Smoke has specialized in off-beat long-form film & literary criticism. The site does all those genius visionary things you are tired of hearing about like exploring the vast horizons of internet-style arts criticism and obliterating the distinctions between high and low art.

Since the site's inception, co-founders John Cribbs and Christopher Funderburg have been dedicated to publishing personal, colloquial writing from a diverse set of writers. The mission of the site is not to be a "rate this movie" consumer guide but to showcase criticism informed by a love of art and an appreciation for the intense impact it can have on our lives.

In avoiding the cliches of critical formats on the internet, The Pink Smoke brings readers work along a diverse set of topics; a breakdown of horror sequels set in space one week and an appreciation of the lesser-loved work of Robert Altman the next. Our goal is to invite readers in to appreciate the art we love, to show them how a book or film matters to us and can expand all our perspectives.

$238 of $5,000 per month
The Pink Smoke becomes a daily site, The Pink Smoke podcast expands to three episodes a month and our financial position becomes so strong that our writers have no choice but to unionize.

Also, site co-founder John Cribbs will buy a new hat, one that says "The Pink Smoke" right across the front of it. This hat will never be available as a subscriber benefit, no matter how many times you request it.
