Hoai-Tran Bui is the Entertainment Editor at Inverse. She previously was an editor and film critic at SlashFilm, and her work has appeared in USA Today and The Washington Post. She is a Rotten Tomatoes-certified critic and co-hosts a Doctor Who/Star Trek podcast called Trekking Through Time and Space.
Hoai-Tran likes people, places, and things. She also probably likes being online too much. Her favorite movie vacillates between Spirited Away, Before Sunset, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, though Chungking Express is making its way up there. Hoai-Tran is probably due for a re-evaluation of her favorite movie.
