Filmwell Returns!

Over the last week, I’ve been thrilled to see Filmwell – the collaborative and strange film blog for adventurous cinephiles that I started with Michael Leary a couple of years ago – transplanted to a new home base at The Other Journal, an online magazine I’ve admired and enjoyed for a long time.

I kicked things off with a “We’re Back!” post, and a few notes on the new Kelly Reichardt film Meek’s Cutoff.

But I’m very excited about what happened at Filmwell today…

Today, Michael Leary delivered the first substantial film-review post: a revelatory meditation on my favorite film of 2011 so far, Abbas Kiarostami’s Certified Copy.

Check it out here.

(And speaking of Certified Copy, Jeremy Purves blogged a good review of it as well.)

And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager.
