The candler blog is an ongoing conversation about cinema, technology and other stuff. It is the personal weblog of Jonathan Poritsky. A candler is able to determine the health of an egg by holding it up to a light. This site derives its eminently clever name from applying those same methods to media, namely cinema.

Jonathan Poritsky is a film critic and journalist based out of Austin, Texas. At varying times he is also a filmmaker, photographer and editor. Formerly the Arts Editor of Heeb Magazine, he has also contributed articles to Toro Magazine, GreenCine Guru, DVInfo.net, NachosNY and unwittingly to the Huffington Post (haven’t we all?). He is also actively involved in Fountain (née Screenplay Markdown), a plain text screenwriting syntax, you know, for nerds.
