Links to my reviews published in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

A Fantastic Woman. “Every contradiction furthers the movie’s argument that what we have here is a densely complicated human being.”

Here’s another interview I did for Film Comment at the Camerimage Film Festival in Bydgoszcz, Poland, in November: A talk with cinematographer Denis Lenoir, who helped develop Olivier Assayas’s distinctive style and also photographed Mia Hansen-Love’s Things to Come. Read it here.

In a slightly different mode of writing for me, here’s a paper I delivered at the 2016 international Shakespeare conference in Iasi, Romania, now collected in the academic journal LINGUACULTURE, published at Alexandru Ioan Cuza University in Iasi. I got to visit Romania for three weeks, thanks to the Fulbright Specialist Program. Here’s the issue; my piece, on Orson Welles and Chimes at Midnight, is clickable.
