love, tragedy, transcendence, and a red balloon

My first article for Wunderkammer magazine is up today: a review of the classic short film, The Red Balloon. The film editor gave me 800 words which was a nice little challenge for my verbose self. But I'm grateful - I stumbled upon Wunderkammer in my internet adventures not too long ago, and I've been an avid reader ever since. I really like their whole vibe and what they are doing, so it's an honor to be published.

Also, if you're curious, here's a link to the unofficial Grizzly Bear video I mentioned in my review. It's a brilliant piece of art, but be warned: the video does contain a few Red Balloon spoilers.
