Established in 1950, after having been originally born under another name in 1919, Films In Review is the oldest motion picture journal in the United States. Per the description on the back of the periodical, "Films in Review is a publication of the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, Inc. The National Board of Review is an independent, non-profit organization of public-spirited citizens founded in 1909 to represent the interests of the motion picture public." Films in Review collects features on filmmakers, technical aspects of film, and specific titles, along with film reviews and lists of recommended titles.
