Gary Morris edits the Bright Lights Film Journal, and is well known among film scholars and critics. I first came into contact with him in 2010 via email, when I sent him a link to an essay I had written that mentioned a book he co-edited with Bert Cardullo. Wanting something more pleasant to talk about, I suggested that I write something for Bright Lights. In his latest online issue, Gary published my latest stab at film scholarship, "The Taste of Greasepaint." Although he made a few changes, like replacing the opening paragraph with a later one, I am pleased with the result. The essay can he found here.
