Wild River, 1960


Holy crap eh, this is my 16th consecutive year. With The Dissolve gone (sniff), I won't be covering the festival for anyone while it's in progress -- just a wrap piece for the Nashville Scene -- but I'll do my best to post snarky capsules on Letterboxd in a semi-timely fashion. And here's my tentative schedule, from which I'll likely diverge every single day.

Las Vegas Weekly

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

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 Martian; Partisan Latest Scenic Route: Duplicity

Other Miscellaneous Writing

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

2015 in Movies

We got reviews. We got a crazily detailed grid-list. We got a running top ten that omits your favorites. (added: Anomalisa; The Martian) 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: Finders Keepers

Elsewhere Online

Increasingly rare random musings and seasonal Skandies updates over at Listen Eggroll. And I’m on the Twitter like the everybody else.
