Josh Larsen releases book, updated website

After spending more than a decade as a film critic, reviewer, and podcaster, Josh Larsen decided to write a book to explore a new perspective on films. As the book was coming together, Josh realized he had an opportunity to broaden his audience and reach, so he turned to Cultivate for help.

Together we redesigned his site to improve filtering capabilities and ease of use, be accessible for mobile users, and to take advantage of large, dramatic film images. We also created a landing page that highlights his new book and acts as the focal point for traffic inbound from social media.

Josh’s book, “Movies Are Prayers,” launched in June of 2017 to rave reviews. We’re excited about the launch of the new, updated and eager to see Josh’s influence continue to grow.


Josh Larsen has been a film critic for Sun Times Media for over a decade, has logged over 2,500 reviews on his “Larsen on Film” website, co-hosts WBEZ’s “Filmspotting” podcast weekly, and recently published “Movies Are Prayers”.
