The Movie Gurus of Movie-Gurus.com are an internationally located co-operative group of Film lovers united by an interest in movies.
The staff screens feature length films and documentaries of an hour or more in length in theaters, at Film Festivals, and on DvD. Occasionally we also review notable shorts or collections.

We hope you enjoy your visit, and welcome your questions and comments.
