After starting his career as a cinema programmer in Paris, he became a cinema critic at Les Inrockuptibles. In 2006, he was offered to create a radio show on the French public radio France Inter. Quickly gaining public and critical praise, the show was nonetheless removed from antennas a year later, triggering an intense polemic and a strike of the journalists of Radio France. He continued his journalistic career, featuring in TV and radio shows, before taking the head of Les Inrocks in 2013 and being nominated by the President of the Republic as the head of La cinémathèque française in December 2015.
He is the son of Robert Bonnaud.
