Mimi O’Connor is a freelance writer who also writes under the name Lois Beckwith.  Apparently she is NOT a movie expert but authored three books around the same topic, one of the books was The Dictionary of Corporate Bullshit.  However, Reel Culture, though a relatively small book, has quite a few “talking points” for 50 movies that she thinks OTHER people assume you have watched :)
