Welcome Michael Atkinson, Movieline's New DVD Columnist!
When the backlog of DVD's congesting your office is so troublesome that A&E sends a Hoarders camera crew to film an episode, then you know you've got a problem. That's why we went to a professional for some discriminating intervention. So! Please welcome the esteemed Michael Atkinson, who, starting today, joins Movieline as our resident DVD columnist and all-around video guru.
You might know Mr. Atkinson from his illustrious work at The Village Voice, IFC.com, Sight & Sound, SPiN, Boston Phoenix, In These Times, The Believer, The L Magazine, Film Comment and elsewhere, including many years of contributions to Movieline when it a magazine. He is also the author of seven books, including Flickipedia (co-authored with his lovely wife Laurel Shifrin) and two novels, Hemingway Deadlights (2009) and Hemingway Cutthroat, coming this summer from St. Martin's Press/Minotaur Books.
Michael will provide expert reconnaissance from the DVD/Blu-ray front several times per week, starting this afternoon. Your input and conversation is encouraged as always. Please say hello!
