Gabe at Rotten Tomatoes

Brooklyn, NY

Gabe Leibowitz fell in love with cinema after seeing The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001, and has been playing catch-up ever since. He enjoys watching classic and foreign films, with new releases sprinkled in, and writes lots of short capsules targeted at today's online readers, mixing in longer essays for films that really grab him. When he's not watching movies, he runs Aboveground Realty, a residential real estate company in Manhattan, loves sports and poker, and spends tons of time with his gorgeous wife Francesca, toy poodle Kiki, and baby Julian (born 8-11-10).
