The key is to find articles written when the film was being produced or when it was released. Many of our standard resources are great for finding articles from the 1990s to the present, so I'm going to suggest some specialized resources or individual websites.
If you find a New York Times film review, but it won't show you the full text, follow these directions to have the library scan a copy of the review for you.
- From the nytimes.com website, write down the full date of the review.
- Click New York Times Film Reviews to go to the EWU Library Catalog record for this print reference set.
- Click on Request a scan of a chapter or excerpt. It will prompt you to log in with your SSO if you haven't already.
- Put the date of the film review in the Date field and in the Page Numbers field in the form. (The reviews are chronological in the set, so that will act as the page numbers for the library staff.)
- For Title of the Article, type in the name of your film.
- Date needed by is also required, but it shouldn't take more than a day or two during the week. (The library isn't open weekends to process requests like this.)
