Zelig, 1983


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.

Las Vegas Weekly

My main gig these days, even though I’m nowhere near Vegas. It’s a new world out there. Latest reviews: The BFG

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: Into the Forest; Miss Sharon Jones! Latest Scenic Route: WALL•E

Other Miscellaneous Writing

The Dissolve is no more, alas, but all the work I'm proud to have done for the site remains.

2016 in Movies

We got reviews. We got a crazily detailed grid-list. We got a running top ten that omits your favorites. (reinstated: Everybody Wants Some!!) Come on down!

Viewing Journal

Snarkier drive-by comments now get filed on Letterboxd. There's also the basic list of every damn film I’ve seen this year. added: Zelig (second viewing; last seen 20+ years ago)

Elsewhere Online

Increasingly rare random musings and seasonal Skandies updates over at Listen Eggroll. If you're curious about what TV I watch, that information is now available. And I’m on the Twitter like the everybody else.
