My review of Blue Like Jazz was published at Filmwell.org several days ago.

But that was just the warm-up.

My conversation with director Steve Taylor has just been published on the website of Seattle Pacific University’s Response magazine. Enjoy.

We talked about the movie, how the good people at Reed College responded to it, and more. Steve opened up about his feelings on The Hunger Games, The Tree of Life, and his upcoming rock album.
