The Cinephile

a devoted moviegoer, esp. one knowledgeable about the cinema.

When i go to see a film, i bring love and passion to the experience. I think this is something the mass- public filmgoer leaves at home. I like to work for the experience. Flex my mind muscles...not have the picture just handed to me. Iam a bit of a snob when it comes to film. I dont claim to know everything, nor do i try to fake it. I do try to expande my knowlege with research. I know a good film when i see it and i know what usually goes into making a good solid film. Film is one of the richest arts we have. Its an escape from the world and worries around us. Its a medium we see artist's like Lynch, Jodorowsky or Luigi Bazzoni "paint" surreal imagry for us to decipher and pick at. And i love it. Film is my obsession!
