Robin Wood

Robert Paul "Robin" Wood (1931-2009) was a Canada-based film critic and educator. He wrote books on Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, Ingmar Bergman, and Arthur Penn and was a member, until 2007, of the editorial collective that publishes the magazine CineACTION!, a film theory collective founded by Wood and other colleagues at Toronto’s York University. Wood began to contribute to the film journal Movie in 1962, primarily on the strength of an essay he wrote for Cahiers du cinéma on Hitchcock’s Psycho. In 1965, he published his first book, Hitchcock’s Films. Robin Wood died from leukemia on December 18, 2009 in Toronto.
