An Update With Good News, Reviews, and Apologies
To my delightful readers,
Thanks to everyone who continues to check the site. As many of you know, I moved last year to Los Angeles to pursue a career writing for film. Within the last month or so, things have escalated here, momentum is in my favor, and I am aiming for shooting some of my own work in the spring. As exciting as that is, it means this blog has taken a backseat, and those who read it have gone without my recommendations.
Let me fill in the gaps of the last month or so of moviegoing with this: my Letterboxd diary. There, I update after every movie I see with some brief thoughts and a ranking on a 5-star system. No, it’s not the wonderful 4-kernel rating I’d perfected over the years… but until I get to update the blog, it will have to do. In a pinch, if you’re looking for my thoughts on new releases, please go there.
Also, rest easy: I shall hopefully update this blog with a slew of reviews very soon, including my usual list of Top Tens that I post at the end of every film calendar year. But if you were wondering where I’d disappeared to, and you were jonesing for some of my thoughts on film– now you know.
Please feel free to follow me on Twitter– http://twitter.com/russellhfilm— and ask me any questions on any recent film you may have. I’d be delighted to talk to you.
Thanks again for reading. I can’t believe I’ve had this blog for nearly five years. In all likelihood, I wouldn’t care nearly as much if I hadn’t gotten such generous feedback and donations over the course of the last year or so. I love you all.
