Deputy editor for a film website, freelance film critic/editor, overall energetic arts and culture consumer.
Most recent film I've seen that I loved: "Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping" on the mainstream front, "Paterson" (the best movie of 2016, imo) and "20th Century Women" on the arthouse front. Also, I see a fair amount of old movies in theaters; my most recent discovery: "The Candy Snatchers" (1973). I could probably quote "Die Hard" verbatim from start to finish.
I've only recently been getting more into television. My current obsession: "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story." "The X-Files" forever!
Most recent book I've read that I loved: Henry James's "The Portrait of a Lady."
Most recent music I've heard that I loved: Leonard Cohen's "Songs of Love and Hate" (RIP). I'm also a pretty big classical-music buff; my current obsession: Anton Bruckner's (sorely underrated) Sixth Symphony. Gustav Mahler is everything.
Most recent play I saw that I loved: Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" in that new Ivo van Hove-directed Broadway production with Ben Whishaw, Saoirse Ronan, and others. And if you count operas: I recently saw Kaija Saariaho's "L'Amour de Loin" at the Metropolitan Opera and quite liked that, too.
