Cinema Enthusiast

Scribblings from a lifelong lover of film. Keeping track of films I watch, the books I read, my blog posts and all related interests.

Aspiring librarian/former screen studies student who dreams of one day dabbling in film programming or archiving film documents or at the very least serving popcorn at an independent theater of some kind! I'm a lifelong pursuer of film to the point where it in large part defines me. I write so I can remember and so I can grow in my efforts to articulate. The online film community is a wondrous place where I hope to interact with many fellow cinephiles!

Idolizes Louise Brooks, Leonard Cohen, Joanna Newsom and Jim Henson. Favorite film is Bringing Up Baby (although in a couple of years I feel Shop Around the Corner could take that coveted spot) but I literally have hundreds and hundreds of favorite films that range from Fat Girl and Dogtooth to The Muppet Christmas Carol and The Emperor's New Groove. I also write for Verite, CineOutsider, and Criterion Cast.

you don't like life is beautiful?!
cinenthusiast cinenthusiast Said:

I hate it. Hate it. HATE IT. The most overwrought, ham-fisted piece of pandering sludge I’ve seen. Uses the Holocaust to tug on the heartstrings in the most childish way I can think of. Let’s just say that when a certain character gets executed, I was glad.
