Notable and notorious IndieWire film critic David Ehrlich recently put out a social media call for film critic peers to join a weekly survey to discuss movie topics, answer questions, and highlight their work.  Representing Every Movie Has a Lesson, I, along with over 60 other emerging and established film critics including some of my fellow Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle members, accepted the invitation to participate.  I’m honored by the opportunity, and I hope my responses are chosen each week.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION: What is Ethan Hawke’s best performance ever?

Matching the home media release of First Reformed, the hot topic this past week was naming Ethan Hawke’s best ever performance.  It was difficult not to pick something from Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy, but I targeted his under-appreciated and under-seen leading role as jazz trumpeter Chet Baker in the 2016 biopic Born to Be Blue.  You’ll see me on the first page of the two page collection.  Enjoy!
