Welcome

Sometimes I write things; movie reviews and essays, mainly. This site exists to keep them all in one place, as well as to house any future non-movie essays, and to display a regularly updated list of recommended articles and links. And who knows, maybe more later on

If you're interested in this sort of thing and want to be informed when something new is added, the best way to keep up is to follow me on Twitter. If you prefer email, please enter your email address into the form below. Naturally, there won't be any sharing or selling of any email address, and I'll gladly remove you at any point:
