A serious cinephile that always enjoys discovering new and interesting talent the world over. I have not, nor ever will work in the cinema world...those directorial dreams crashed after college. During that tenure I had made a few short films and written several scripts which will be handed down to my children and will never be released to the public. Upon first viewing "2001: A Space Odyssey", at a young age, director Kubrick galvinized me into the thought process that film can indeed be a thoughtful piece of art. A critic I will never be, but instead a champion of the undervalued and overlooked films of the past millenium.

  • Favorite director: Stanley Kubrick
  • Favorite Criterion edition: Paris, Texas
  • Most wanted in the collection: 1.) Jerry Lewis' "The Day The Clown Cried" 2.) Kon Ichikawa's "Enjo" 3.) Takeshi Kitano's "Hana-bi" 4.) Peter Greenaway's "The Belly Of An Architect" 5.) Nicolas Roeg's "Eureka" 6.) Bill Forsyth's "Comfort And Joy"
