About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Writer
Location Dallas, Texas, United States
Introduction I am not a film critic. I am a film expert. I have a degree in film from Columbia College Chicago. For the record, I am smarter than most people I know and I know more about cinema than you. You'll find posts about new films coming out, but you're as likely to find me discussing films from last year, years ago, etc. I also have a thing for lists. Look out for that. So please, cinophiles welcome. You're home.
Interests Cinema, Music, Smallish Clubs, Socialist/Green Politics, Family, (Not just the concept of family, but specifically MY family) Literature, Scripture, Separating Christianity from the American Fundamentalist/Evangelical movement, Slurpees, (which sucks, since I have diabetes) and of course, Sex.
Favorite Movies Videodrome, Blue is the Warmest Colour, Some Like it Hot, Jules and Jim, Belle de Jour, Umbrellas of Chourberg, experimental shorts from the likes of Salvador Dali, Luis Buñuel, Maya Deren, David Lynch, and others, The Devil's Rejects, Rosemary's Baby
Favorite Music Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Skinny Puppy, Kate Bush, Chris Connelly, Portishead, Depeche Mode, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, (from 1986-1992) there's no excuse for anything that's come before or since, Janis Joplin, Le Tigre, Bratmobile, Alien Sex Fiend, PWR BTTM, Ice Cube
Favorite Books The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Howl & other poems by Allen Ginsberg, The Trial & The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka, The Bible, (especially the books of Ezekiel and Daniel in the Old Testament and the Gospels in the New. I mean, it's best get it straight from the source, so anything printed in red, and I also like parts of Ephesians. But it's all good.), anything by Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Karl Marx
