Cosmo Landesman is a journalist and editor and son of Jay and Fran Landesman. With his then wife Julie Burchill, he set up the magazine The Modern Review. The magazine eventually folded, and Burchill left him for Charlotte Raven, one of the magazine's female interns.

After the experience Landesman quit the UK in 1995 to work in New York. He was one of the contributors to Vanity Fair's Cool Britannia issue.

He now reviews films for The Sunday Times. His memoir Starstruck (2008) concerns his unconventional family, his awkwardness about them and eventual reconciliation.[1][2]
