Clouds of Sils Maria, 2014


Guess who's back. Back again. gemko's back. Tell a friend. Armed once more with a halfway decent rose badge, I'll be filing daily reports for The Dissolve, beginning Thursday.

The Dissolve

R.I.P. The archive will reportedly remain, so here's all of the work I'm proud to have done for the site over the past two years. Final reviews (filed but never published): Strangerland; 10,000 KM

Las Vegas Weekly

My main gig these days, even though I’m nowhere near Vegas. It’s a new world out there. Latest reviews: Testament of Youth; Trainwreck

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: Five Star; Listen to Me Marlon Latest Scenic Route: Frank Miller's Sin City

2015 in Movies

We got reviews. We got a crazily detailed grid-list. We got a running top ten that omits your favorites. (added: Mad Max: Fury Road) 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: The Kindergarten Teacher

Elsewhere Online

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