Nicole Keeter Film critic for Time Out New York, at the Grand Screen in the Tribeca Grand Hotel
What makes your job fun? I love watching movies, and it's a thrill to see them first. What's truly fulfilling about my job is that I can champion the worthwhile smaller films that might not receive the attention they deserve.

How do you keep yourself from falling asleep during movies? On the days when I see three or four films
in a row, I need a cup of coffee or a chocolate bar to help me through the later
ones. But when a story is compelling, I'll leave the theater feeling invigorated
no matter how tired I was when I entered it.
