Midnight Run, 1988


Once again, I'm attending strictly for my own pleasure (and on my own dime), so there'll be no professional coverage. Check Letterboxd for whatever quick capsules I find time for; here's my (as always) extremely preliminary schedule, from which I will diverge many times, guaranteed.

Las Vegas Weekly

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

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: Fire at Sea; Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Latest Scenic Route: The Remains of the Day

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. (added: Tower) 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: Creepy; Cat People '42 (second viewing; last seen ca. 1990-91)

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.
