    1. Thanks, I love movies in and of themselves but they are a site where many other factors meet, and to me above all they are a means to learn about other things: world history, the other arts, other cultures, etc. Hope that some of my interests are reflected in my writings, and that it might interests others too.

  1. Your articles do indeed cover all those important angles, not just film, in an amazingly good way. You are an informative, eloquent, seriously interesting writer, just keep doing what you do
