Red, 1994

Patreon

Finally, reluctantly created an account, because otherwise I just no longer had the time to write non-professional reviews. Now I do again. My heartfelt thanks to all the strictly swell folks who've signed up. Everything will still eventually get posted on Letterboxd (about a month after it's written), but if you're the impatient type, here's where to head. It's only one dollar per month! (A bit more if you want to suggest films for me to watch/review, or vote in polls re: same.)

Alternate Ending

New gig! I'm a fan of this site and particularly of its longtime main critic, Tim Brayton; also very happy to be free (professionally) of the A.V. Club's ban on first person, which inhibited me more than I'd realized. There might be podcasting later. Stay tuned! Latest review: Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

Other Miscellaneous Writing

The assholes at G/O Media made it impossible for me to continue at the A.V. Club, where I'd toiled for 13 years. You can still find my many contributions, though, including Scenic Routes, a biweekly column about film scenes of note. The Dissolve is no more, alas, but all the work I'm proud to have done for the site remains. And Las Vegas Weekly pretty much stopped running reviews altogether, but my stint for them ran from Munich to Phantom Thread.

We got reviews. We got a crazily detailed grid-list. We got a running top ten that omits your favorites. (added: Jackass Forever) 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: Elvis

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.
