My latest feature for Maclean's: How Adam Driver is driving a new era of unlikely leading men.

I talked to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for my latest piece in Maclean's: Can a new Sin City thrive in an all-digital world?

My Maclean's feature on Quebecois director Jean-Marc Vallée, the man who saves Hollywood stars from themselves.

In my latest piece for Maclean's, I talked to documentarian Ron Mann and Kathryn Altman about the man, the legend, the myth (ok, he's real, not a myth) Robert Altman.

My latest for Maclean's: On Third Person director Paul Haggis, Hollywood's most frustrated (and transparent) man.
