Writing Other Places

As some of you may know, I have been dabbling in authoring film reviews for a few other sites out there on the world wide interwebs this year. I've kept it on a kind of theoretical down-low partially because I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about it (because sometimes I can sense the joy I have always found in writing getting strained out and that frightens me and makes me feel little a nauseous because if you can't sense your own voice in what you're writing then it's merely the rhetoric of 17,000 other movie reviews which.....gag) and partially because I haven't been able to write about much that has genuinely thrilled me. Until recently.

Recently I got to write about "Chinese Puzzle" (review here), which I loved, for Slant Magazine and about "Tanta Agua" (review here), which I really, really loved, for PopMatters. Please feel free to check out each review, but more crucially, feel free to watch each movie. They deserve your eyes. We need more like them.
