This week's review: Clouds of Sils Maria



Check out this week's reviews: The Water Diviner in the Star & The Wrecking Crew.



My latest review for the Star, Monkey Kingdom, is online.




I've posted a review of the new independent film Cut Bank.



I got to participate in a great panel discussion of Selma on KCUR. It wasn't just a review, either - it was also a chance to talk about history and its representation in Hollywood, along with many other topics.


​​And now, for some new content! My review of A Most Violent Year is in the Kansas City Star this week.
