I have been a film critic for more than 17 years and worked professionally, as a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association for the past 6 years. My favorite movie of all time is The Big Lebowski because it always feels new.

I must admit, I am a little intimidated by the idea of writing about BTS. This Korean boy band, my apologies if that sounds dismissive, that's not my intent, has become the biggest thing in pop music ...

For years, for me, the music of Ryuichi Sakamoto was some throwaway music reference. In the movie High Fidelity, I always intended to look up but never did. I took note of his work recently when I saw The Last Emperor, for the first time in more than a decade, but it wasn’t until this week when I saw the remarkable documentary Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda that I finally came to understand his genius.
