Biography:
I'm located in Spokane, WA, where I'm the film critic for NPR statons KPBX-FM and KSFC-FM. My book, 'Movies 101: A Guide to Looking at Films' will be published next year by Eastern Washington University Press. I'm an ex-New Yorker, where I was a DGA director and a writer of screenplays. I taught film and film directing at the School of Visual Arts, and was film critic for two weekly papers. Here in Spokane I've taught at Eastern Washington University, have programmed a two-screen independent/revival/foreign film theatre, have hosted film series, and in March 1999 I directed Spokane's first Northwest Film Festival, showing invited films from Northwest U.S. and Canadian filmmakers ("Drive, She Said," "Kitchen Party," "Dirty," and "Holy Days" were the invited films). It was Ingmar Bergman who first showed me the power of films, and the first movie I fell in love with was Truffaut's 'Jules and Jim.' I was a founding member of New York's Filmmakers Cooperative, where 'Chelsea Girls' opened me up to the possibility of breaking away from the conventional. In the Chaplin/Keaton dichotomy I come down on the Keaton side, and the most perfect film I know is "The Godfather, Part One." And Part Two isn't so bad, either. I came late to the great Japanese films -- "Sansho the Bailiff," "The Burmese Harp," and others -- but I've tried to make up for lost time by teaching them in a couple of film series.
