Jonathan M. McMillan

My fascination with classic motion pictures began in 1973 at 12 years of age, sneaking downstairs at night to watch movies made decades before I was born in the 1930’s and 40’s. It was saved from being a solitary pursuit at the time only because my mother was familiar with most of the actors that I was being impressed by and had seen many of the same movies when she was a young girl. Over the past 40 years, though I’ve never sought out fellow film buffs, this private passion has found comrades at the most unexpected of times. Questions still linger about some of those films I saw during my formative years, so to begin with, this association will be a nostalgic one for me. My experience thus far confirms that Criterion is indeed a trustworthy travelling companion down that yellow-bricked road.
