Click here for film review from 2015 and earlier

In addition to my writing, I am a film critic for the Independent Institute, a think tank based in Oakland, California with a global platform. Reviews with a political economy angle are usually posted on the Independent Institute site (although they also examine the artistic merit and quality of the film). Reviews that are more artistically focused, or targeted toward a more general movie-going audience, are posted on my personal blog ( Below are the links to all these reviews. Civil and serious comments and reactions to my review are welcome on both sites. Full disclosure: I do not receive compensation for these reviews. I almost always see them in theaters and pay the full ticket (or DVD) price.
