Film Reviews and Discussion.
In (cyber)space, no one can hear you type…
There is a realisation and a knowing irony to the title of this blog. Believe me. After all, I have to concede that this is yet another site soon to exult opinion after opinion, to be placed in amongst the thousands of others.
So, the question is, why should you listen to this particular voice?
There is a reason. If, like me, you share a disappointment and disdain at the film press for their willingness to assess a film on the anticipation the public’s view rather than providing a clear and balanced opinion, then note that I am your companion and comrade. If you don’t like being talked down to, and you don’t like being dumb-downed either, then I assure you that will not happen here.
The aim for this blog is simple:
Films to be reviewed, old and new, across a broad spectrum of styles, genres, English speaking and non-English speaking. There might even be the odd discussion.
Cineastes will have you believe that you are a knuckle dragging primitive if you don’t appreciate world cinema, whereas some members of the public will brand you a snob if you steer away from the Mother Tongue, and treat you as a social outcast who is outrageously pretentious. If you love film, you know it is not as simple as that. Then again, as in life, nothing is.
So here the journey begins.
With a hint of further knowingness, the first review is of a film discussing the future of the print media. Very appropriate topic for an online blog, me’thinks.
Anyway, that’s all I have to say for now.
Thanks for your time and happy reading (if anyone is there).
