What is Between Art and Life?

It’s a newsletter! Every Thursday you’ll get a full review of one of that week’s new releases, as well as shorter thoughts on whatever else I’ve watched/read/listened to that week, plus some links to interesting things you might (or might not! I don’t know your life) want to check out.

Why is it called that?

Oh, sure, that makes sense—the title of this newsletter comes from a favorite quote of mine:

“The cinema is not an art which films life: the cinema is something between art and life. Unlike painting and literature, the cinema both gives to life and takes from it.”

- Jean-Luc Godard

OK, but who are you?

Good call, I should have mentioned that earlier: I’m a senior editor for the online film journal Bright Wall/Dark Room, as well as a member of the Boston Society of Film Critics, and the author of the forthcoming Columbia University Press book The Cinema of Paul Thomas Anderson: American Apocrypha. If you need to know more than that, I guess you could visit my website if you want to, but don’t consider it compulsory.

How much does it cost?

Another great question! Nothing.
