Welcome to Long Voyage Home by me, Adam Cook, perpetually amateur and sometimes professional film person.
Writing as a critic for the better part of a decade, my bylines have appeared in The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, Indiewire, VICE, Film Comment, Sight & Sound, MUBI, Cinema Scope, Filmmaker Magazine, Little White Lies, and Cineaste, among other outlets.
Published pieces will range from reviews to interviews to video essays to short and long-form criticism on films and film culture with focus paid to both the old and new, including of-the-moment festival coverage — first up, an interview with award-winning filmmaker Lav Diaz about his latest film, Genus, Pan, making its world premiere at the 77th Venice Film Festival.
Some of my past work that is no longer available online will be published here but the vast majority of content will be original. Much will be free to read with full access to the website and exclusive content available only to paid subscribers.
