Sam Gray

Chief Film Critic

Sam holds a degree in Film and Literature from the University of Warwick, and became a critic out of a desperate need to watch every film that has ever been made. On most days, you'll be able to find him in the dark corner of a Soho screening room, or chugging down coffees at a Leicester Square café, typing an impassioned defence of Tom Cruise's jawline.
