OscarFan

I'm a Canadian independent filmmaker and writer, who fell in love with movies as a small child: at first it was Chuck Jones and Disney, then Lucas and Zemeckis, then Rob Reiner and Benigni, then Lynch and Antonioni, then Powell & Pressburger and Satyajit Ray. I love every genre except horror (which makes me somewhat an oddity in the world of film-fans). I love lists, I'm really messy and somewhat disorganized, I have a pet dog named Roxie, I'm in love with every actress whose ever shown up on the silver screen, I read a lot but not nearly as much as I should, I think that Joss Whedon is a screenwriting God, I have a wonderful and supportive family, I love sci-fi/fantasy television, I don't eat right but I exercise, I'm obsessed with the Oscars but only because I don't take them too seriously, and sometimes I tend to ramble.

  • Favorite director: Woody Allen
  • Favorite Criterion edition: The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
  • Most wanted in the collection: Tarkovsky's Mirror and Stalker, Antonioni's Blowup (without the deletions and edits that exist in current DVD versions) & The Major Works of Guru Dutt (Pyaasa and Kaagaz Ke Phool)
