Gender Male
Industry Arts
Occupation writer/broacaster and film critic
Location Toronto, ON, Canada
Introduction Independent critiques of television, movies, books, music, theatre, culture, and the arts. Daily.
Interests Film, music, books and sports -- and not always in that order.
Favorite Movies Too many to list and the list will continue to expand. Let's just say that Renoir's "Rules of the Game" is the most perfect film; "Bonnie and Clyde" woke me up to film art; "Showgirls" showed me how much fun movie trash could be; "The Godfather 1 and II" made me want to be a critic.
Favorite Music The Beatles opened my mind and Frank Zappa broadened my horizons. My taste on any given day can range from Webern to Guitar Slim.
Favorite Books You'll learn all you need to know about human pathology in "The Brother's Karamazov." Robert Warshow's "The Immediate Experience, " Pauline Kael's "Deeper into Movies" and Greil Marcus' "Mystery Train" will show you how to be a critic.
