Wednesday, October 9, 2013 - Revered film critic Stanley Kauffmann has died at the age of 97.

Kauffmann passed away from pneumonia at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City on Wednesday (09Oct13).

The film and theater buff began his career at The New Republic over 50 years ago and is responsible for coining the term, "film generation" to describe the rise in film critiques in the 1960s and 1970s.

In addition to critiquing movies, Kauffmann was also very active in the theatre industry, and he was credited for helping to get Walker Percy's award-winning debut novel, The Moviegoer, to the stage, after coming across Percy's manuscript as an editor at Alfred A. Knopf and advocating to have it published after a year of rewrites and edits.

Kauffmann was also an author, penning several books on film and theatre.
