My New Film Blog at Time Out Chicago and Other News


I am excited to announce that I have been asked to write a film blog for Time Out Chicago. I will typically be writing one short article per week related to Chicago’s local film scene. My first post, about the innovative “Facets Kids App” (for which you may remember I directed the official Kickstarter video last October), went up today. You can read it here:

Tomorrow morning, Time Out will also be posting an interview I conducted with local critics Ben and Kat Sachs about their Beguiled Cinema programming endeavor, which will play host to a double-feature screening of films by Dan Sallitt at Colubmia College’s Film Row Cinema tomorrow night. All of the info you need pertaining to the screening will be in Time Out tomorrow but, as this event should be considered unmissable for local cinephiles (it is a rare chance to see the work of an unheralded master of independent American cinema on the big screen), I thought I should give you a heads up today. My reviews for the Sallitt films in question (1998’s Honeymoon and 2004’s All the Ships at Sea) will also appear tomorrow at

You can buy tickets for the Dan Sallitt double feature here:
