Chloe Pfeiffer Former Staff

Despite what her nose piercing would have you think, Chloe Pfeiffer has never been quite as radical as Tom, her life mentor, would like her to be. A senior on the Bark staff, Chloe's #1 joy in life is copy editing the investigative masterpieces of her peer journalists: she loves nothing more than watching a non-spell checked duckling transform before her eyes into a beautiful, publishable swan. In her free time she enjoys running cross country, watching The Hangover with Spanish subtitles, and failing to embrace opportunities to YOLO. Written by Sophie Epstein

Insane City a great chaotic journey through Miami

by on

At first glance, Insane City seems likely to be rooted more in ridiculousness than real substance.

Anna Karenina outshined by its own costumes

by on

The trailer for the new movie Anna Karenina brought one word to mind: epic. The music, the costumes, the scenery – it seemed like it would be an instant classic, not only an impressive period drama but also a passionate love story. The trailer itself could win an Oscar, I thought. But the actual film […]

We started our journey at twilight. We pulled into the movie theater parking lot at 10:30 p.m. We were shaking, both from cold and fear – the fear of finding ourselves at the end of the huge line of Twihards. But this fear was soon replaced with sheer terror, as we discovered the parking lot […]
