Everyone has these really professional biographies and then I'm here - writing a monologue... I'm not that kind of critic who approaches a film as though it's in need of grading, I am not an examiner, a film is not a test. In fact, I believe that film is capable of teaching us about the most unbelievable things; things we might have otherwise never known. We are in a constantly expanding world of entertainment, a place where nothing creates just one opinion. We are inhabitants of cinema, each from our own place of origin. Our culture and our understanding of the world informs our reception of each and every film we see. Film criticism is more important than examining a film and simply grading it. We are constantly learning from one another; forever asking: what makes cinema great? and endlessly guessing what we think makes cinema not so great. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the films I write about (and the ones I don't), but I especially hope you enjoy reading about them.
