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.

Had I seen The Favourite in time, this choice may have been different. I settled on Paul Fieg’s messy wannabe and cheese-covered erotic gumshoe flick A Simple Favor. Read my rationale and article excerpt below.
