Greg Diablo

My story is probably very common to many of you already here. Grew up hunting the TV Guide for cool films to see each week, and this is an addiction I have found hard to break. In the '80s, I was into exploitation and psychotronic type films, and restlessly hunted for them in rental stores. When I was out of work and managed to get unemployment compensation for the first time in my life, I used my spare time to rent VHS versions of all the classic foreign films from the library, thus supplanting my domestic cinematic education. When I got an internet connection and a new computer in 2008, I scoured the bootleg DVD sites for other rarities on my never-ending checklist of "God-I-have-to-see-this-film", and started a video salon called "Cinema Diablo". So here I am at Criterion still on the hunt, and I've already found several titles that look very promising indeed. I especially love films that contain an undercurrent of subversion and the championing of a Dionysian imagination. My addiction continues....
