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, "Jackie" and "Things to Come" on the arthouse front. Also, I see a fair amount of old movies in theaters; my most recent discovery: Juzo Itami's "Tampopo" (1985). I could probably quote "Die Hard" verbatim from start to finish.
I've only recently been getting more into television. My current obsession: "Mozart in the Jungle." "The X-Files" forever (yeah, I even liked the recent mini-series overall, as much of a mixed bag as it was)!
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: Franz Liszt's "Les Préludes." 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 Leoš Janáček's "Jenůfa" at the Metropolitan Opera and quite liked that, too.
