How is it possible to distinguish yourself as a critic when every day there are more people talking about movies? Today's guest is Clarisse Loughrey, an incredible chief film critic at The Independent, and a regular stand-in for Mark Kermode on BBC Radio 5 Live's "Kermode and Mayo."

While studying Ancient History in college, she started writing movie reviews for the college newspaper and found that she really enjoyed it and found a fascinating path in that profession without studying specifically for it.

We can say Clarisse certainly has it.
