About Alec Kubas-Meyer One of us since 9:39 AM on 05.12.2011
Alec Kubas-Meyer signed up for Flixist in May of 2011 as a news writer, and he never intended to write a single review. Funny, then, that he is now the site's Reviews (and Features) Editor. After stumbling upon the existence of that year's New York Asian Film Festival only two days before it began (and getting very lucky that they wanted the press), he saw some movies that radically changed his worldview, and that was that. Now he is one of the most prolific reviewers on the site, greatly helped by the constant stream of screening series and film festivals around New York City. Generally speaking, the films he reviews are ones that won't make many waves in mainstream American cinema, but he feels that, bad or good, those are the films that need the coverage most of all.
He likes all kinds of movies, everything from Jason Siegel-centered romantic comedies to black-and-white Swedish arthouse movies to movies that would make the average person all but skin themselves in the shower in an attempt to get clean. Also Asian films, especially Korean films. Alec really likes Korean films, thanks in large part to that same film festival.
When not watching or writing about movies, Alec can be found making them amateurish-ly. He also plays videogames, and writes about them on the internet sometimes, usually for The Daily Beast.
