He is featured in For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism. In this 2009 documentary film he discusses early film critics Frank E. Woods, Robert E. Sherwood, and Otis Ferguson, and tells of how, in the 1960s, he, Pauline Kael, and Andrew Sarris, all young critics, rejected the moralizing opposition of Bosley Crowther of The New York Times who had railed against violent movies such as Bonnie and Clyde. In addition to film, Schickel has also critiqued and documented cartoons, particularly Peanuts.Schickel was a recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1964. He has also lectured at Yale University and University of Southern California's School of Film and Television.

#Quote
1[on the films of Orson Welles] It is a measure of Hollywood's lack of imagination that his films still seem avant-garde when seen today.
2Memory is the personal journalism of the soul.
3A great novel is concerned primarily with the interior lives of its characters, as they respond to the inconvenient narratives that fate imposes on them. Movie adaptations of these monumental fictions often fail because they become mere exercises in interior decoration.
4The common cold of the male psyche: fear of commitment.
5The law of unintended consequences pushes us ceaselessly through the years, permitting no pause for perspective.
6[on the Hollywood 'Walk of Fame' (2012)] It has nothing to do with who is an authentic, for-the-ages star. That has deteriorated. It's driven entirely by what is hot at this moment, publicity and money. It's nice, but it's not the ultimate accolade for a movie actor.
7[on Cary Grant] The drama in a Cary Grant movie is always seeing whether the star can be made to lose his wry, elegant and habitual aplomb.
8[on Clint Eastwood] As a director, Eastwood is not as good as he thinks he is. As an actor, he is probably better than he allows himself to be.
9[on Robert Redford] Redford is adorable, but when they enriched that handsome hunk of white bread they somehow left out the mythic minerals.
10The best kind of heroism is to be found in the relentless practice of one's profession. (Of fellow critic Pauline Kael): An almost demonically possessed little woman.
#Fact
1In the first of his many film books, "Movies" (published in 1965), he referred to King Vidor dismissively as a hack director who had "ground out pot-boilers" until his death. In fact, the eminent director was still very much alive at the time (he did not die until 1982) and, some ten years later, Schickel interviewed him at length for a TV documentary. In his book "The Men Who Made The Movies", Schickel spoke of Vidor in the most laudatory terms and referred to him as "King", implying they were friends. He did not mention his 1965 dismissal, nor did he apologize for it. (It is possible he had confused King Vidor with Charles Vidor, a bad mistake for a critic to make in a history of the cinema).
2Release of the autobiography, "Lena" by Richard and Lena Horne. [1986]
3President of Lorac Productions, which produces documentaries on film history and personalities.
4Film Critic for Time Magazine since 1972. Before that, he was film critic for "Life" Magazine.
5Film historian and author.
