We're happy to announce that A.A. Dowd is The A.V. Club's new film editor. Mr. Dowd—we call him Alex, which is actually his middle name—comes to us from Time Out Chicago, where we've admired his writing for some time. Alex's favorite movie of all-time is Chungking Express, which is a pretty solid choice: It's foreign but accessible, smart but never impenetrable. Please help us welcome Alex with a resounding cheer in the comments below, and look for his byline with great frequency in the coming weeks, months, and years.
