Rumsey Taylor is formerly the creator and editor of Not Coming to a Theater Near You, a film publication that assumes a bias towards older and repertory cinema. He has additionally contributed to The Boston Phoenix, The Brooklyn Rail, and Senses of Cinema. He works professionally as a graphic designer, and likes subway maps, drawing expressive to-do lists on the back of his hand, and not throwing shoeboxes away.
Right now his favorite films include Andrei Rublev, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, The Fly, and Gates of Heaven.
