Michael Snydel

Michael Snydel (@snydel) is a writer based in Chicago who has been obsessed with film and film criticism since he could read. For the first decade of his life, he could bizarrely tell you the rating of nearly every film that came out without looking. He now tries to devote his time to slightly less pointless pursuits. He writes regularly for The Film Stage, and has had by-lines at Paste Magazine, The AV Club and The Dissolve (RIP).
