    SPLICEDwire is on hiatus

    Dear friends and readers,

    Due to several converging circumstances, including family obligations and hitting a wall of exhaustion after 10 years of 70-hour work weeks (and more than 2,500 reviews and interviews), I'm putting SPLICEDwire and my content service on indefinite hiatus beginning September 30.

    I will still be attending some screenings, as I will probably to return to film journalism -- perhaps in a new format or with a new focus -- once I've rested and my obligations are resolved.

    If you would like to be notified when I return to writing about movies, please use this link to send me your email address

    Be seeing you!

    Here's the scoop:

    Based on the the life of John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester, who was a poet, courtier and notorious rake who has a passionate romance with a young actress, Elizabeth Barry, and writes a scurrilous play which lampoons the monarch who commissioned it, Charles II, leading to the Earl's banishment and eventual downfall. Adapted by Stephen Jeffreys from his own play.
