  • William finds that the best way to enjoy a movie, or any kind of media, is to analyze it, putting into words the effect it creates.


William Taylor started in the comments sections of The AV Club and The Dissolve and was inspired to follow in the footsteps of those great culture writers. She has written longform and shortform pieces for the website The Solute since 2014, including yearly reviews of the films of Steven Soderbergh. She also wrote weekly film reviews for her college newspaper, Buzz Magazine, from 2017 to 2019. She tries to watch at least a movie a day to give her something to think and write about.


William graduated one semester early from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in Journalism.
