Film

I like movies. I wrote a lot of movie reviews for my college paper, and after college I continued to write them and post them in this section of my website. But for some time now, my film writing has been posted pretty much exclusively to Phillyist.com and my blog. This part of the website will therefore serve primarily as an archive of my earlier film writing, and will most likely not be featuring new content any time soon.

NEW as of 02-01-2008:

It's been a long time since I added a news update to this part of the site, and there's a good reason for that: I pretty much don't use it anymore. I've updated the introductory text at the top of the page to reflect that. I'll be keeping this part of the site open, but only as an archive of my previous film writing. For new film writing from me, please check out my blog and Phillyist.com. And thanks for reading!

NEW as of 12-30-2005:

At long last, and just in the nick of time, the Diary of the 14th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival is complete. Please, read the last entry, and join me in celebration!

NEW as of 11-30-2005:

I have completed the penultimate film festival diary entry, and it is live on the interweb for your entertainment. Now I have one whole month to finish the last entry. I'm sitting pretty, folks.
