Film Criticism

My reviews and essays have appeared in Senses of Cinema, Millennium Film Journal, Paste, Crooked Marquee, NonFics, and the quarterly film magazine Cineaste, where I am an assistant editor. I am a voting member of GALECA and an alumnus of the Berlinale Talents program. As a former contributor at Film School Rejects, I wrote two regular news columns on trending topics and films/TV based on true stories. Below is a selection of my work.
