The 46th Chicago International Film Festival is packed to the gills with films, fans and critics. For two weeks, many folks will be lining up to see some of the most anticipated cinematic releases of the year: there’s Black Swan, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, 127 Hours, Certified Copy, Hereafter, The Tempest and The Debt.
I’m happy to announce I’ve joined the PopMatters team. I’ll mostly be covering music, but my first rush of work will be dedicated to the Chicago International Film Festival. There’s a host of interesting looking films this year, and it’s great to cover the fest for PopMatters. Check out my first piece on The Robber here.
