I Wrote These Things: Post-TIFF Edition



It's been a busy late summer/early fall - so busy, I haven't updated this damn thing in way too long. But here are a few highlights:

My first solo byline at Rolling Stone, a profile of Prayer Before Dawn star Joe Cole.

Over at Vulture, I ranked every damn episode of Sports Night, which turns 20 this month.

For the New York Times, I contributed to a big obituary round-up of Neil Simon's work. 

I went to TIFF! And wrote many reviews there for The Playlist:

Widows
If Beale Street Could Talk
High Life
Hold the Dark
The Outlaw King
Beautiful Boy
The Death and Life of John F. Donovan
mid90s
Maya

I also reviewed Fahrenheit 11/9 for L.A. Weekly, and did a big TIFF diary for Flavorwire.

And also for Flavorwire:

I reviewed The Sisters Brothers, and praised John C. Reilly.

I interviewed Larry Clark, mostly about Kids.

MoviePass is basically dead, so I wrote an obit.

And there are more excerpts of the book (which, don't forget, is still available in paperbook and ebook!): this one, from Flavorwire, on Night Movies, and this one, from Oscilloscope's Musings, on Shaft.
