Matt Zoller Seitz (born December 26, 1968)[2] is an American film and television critic, author, and filmmaker.

Career

Matt Zoller Seitz is editor-at-large at RogerEbert.com,[3] and the television critic for New York magazine and Vulture.com, as well as a member of the George Foster Peabody Awards[4] board of jurors. He was previously a television critic at Salon.com and The Newark Star Ledger, and a film critic for The New York Times. Prior to this he was a regular media columnist for the Dallas Observer. He founded the film and media criticism blog The House Next Door. Seitz is known as a leader in the creation of video essays, frequently featured on Moving Image Source[5] and The L Magazine,[6] and served as the publisher of PressPlay, a site for video-based film and television criticism. He was a finalist for the 1994 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.[7]

Seitz's second book, The Wes Anderson Collection, was published by Abrams Books in 2013.[8] In February 2015, The Wes Anderson Collection: The Grand Budapest Hotel was published by Abrams Books. The Wes Anderson Collection was praised for its design and layout, which was intended to suggest the look and feel of an Anderson film and suggest that the reader was being taken on a tour of the filmmaker's imagination. "This book is the future," wrote Michael Sicinski in Cineaste.[9]Mad Men Carousel: The Complete Critical Companion written by Seitz and with illustrations by Max Dalton was published by Abrams Books in November 2015.

He wrote, directed and edited the feature film, Home (2005).[10]
