About me

Location United Kingdom
Introduction I love world cinema, especially contemporary European, Latin American and Asian art house films that are slow-paced, contemplative and are more concerned with mood and emotion than with plot. Films that are sparse in dialogue and explore the internal worlds of the characters. Actors who can effortlessly express their character's innermost thoughts with silences and gestures. Stories that are presented visually but allow us the freedom for subjective interpretation. Characters in whom we recognise aspects of ourselves and remember being them.
Favorite Movies Béla Tarr, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Tran Anh Hung, Mia Hansen-Løve, Olivier Assayas, Maria Saakyan, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, Andrey Zvyagintsev, Julio Medem, Sébastien Lifshitz, Philippe Garrel, Lucía Puenzo, Lucrecia Martel, Fabián Bielinsky, Víctor Erice, José Luis Guerín, Michael Haneke, Montxo Armendáriz, Lisandro Alonso, Kornél Mundruczó
