Many thanks to the A.V. Club (and film editor A.A. Dowd in particular) for welcoming me back to Croisette coverage after I defected to The Dissolve for a couple of years. You can find my daily dose of deflation here starting Thursday.

The A.V. Club

I write for these folks too, because diversity, prestige, more paychecks. You’ll find me contributing film reviews and the occasional feature. I also pen Scenic Routes, a biweekly column about film scenes of note. Latest reviews: The Idol; Unlocking the Cage Latest Scenic Route: Daisy Kenyon
