Tony Kay has been writing about film for two decades now. He won the Northwest division of the Independent Film Channel’s Ultimate Film Fanatic game show a few years ago, during which Henry Rollins proclaimed Tony’s movie nerd kung-fu to be “devastating, gnarly and crushing” on national TV. Kay also writes about music for the SunBreak.com and Examiner.com.
