You use movie titles/ characters/ terms as everyday adjectives:
“It’s like “FATAL ATTRACTION”
I had a “Fellini-esque” summer
She was like “Nurse Ratched”
When you start up a conversation with people from the other side of the globe who dont speak your language but you perfectly understand each other
I work at a restaurant and some swedes came in, speaking little to no english
I started a conversation with them about Ingmar Bergman and even though we didnt speak the same language, I felt like I had gained a group of friends
When you’ve seen all the movies made by Fassbinder in the 70s
When you memorize the lyrics to “Por Que Te Pas” and then sing along in “Cria Cuervos”
When you make personal alphabetical and chronological lists of movies, directors, actors, cinematographers, editors so you can work their films in that order (very sad)
When the opening shot of Touch Of Evil gives you a hard-on each time
“When you memorize the lyrics to “Por Que Te Pas” and then sing along in “Cria Cuervos””
I really, really want to do this now!
Haha. I just love doing that!
You get teary-eyed just as Last Year at Marienbad is about to start in a movie theater even though you’ve seen the film more than once on a television screen. It’ll also take a few days for you to get over the fact that you’re bladder was about to burst 2/3 of the way through causing you to interrupt your euphoria.
…you hate some of the Best Picture winners.
…you think Showgirls is a good movie not because it’s bad.
When you care about how you watch films, not how many.
…when you can pronounce Apichatpong Weerasethakul
…when Haneke starts to feel Kubrikianly overrated
…when you start to agree with your friends about shitty movies because its too exhausting not to
…when you vote in the Mubi world cup but not in the presidential election
…when you misquote the release year from some decades old foreign film and then feel embarrassed by it
…when you correct someone who misquotes the release year of some decades old foreign film and feel empowered by it
…when you ditched all your friends to watch Kaneto Shindo films the day he died (RIP sensei!)
When you have two Halliwell’s (his last and the first of the new) and a Leonard Maltin Film Guide.
When you’ve read “Dipped in Vitriol” by Leslie Halliwell.
When you find Louise Brooks way hotter than Marilyn
If you own the DVD of something, and you stream it on Netflix because you don’t want to take off the plastic, you just might be a cinephile.
If you get angry at a film because the main character survived, chances are you might be a cinephile.
If your friends are talking about a film, and you ask them who the director is, you just might be a cinephile.
If you see a nude lady, and you’re most turned on by the lighting, you’re probably a die hard cinephile.
If you want to see a movie over three hours long, and it’s any movie other than Godfather or Lord of the Rings, all signs point to you being a cinephile.
If you’ve seen Citizen Kane, and lie about having seen The Avengers, you might be a cinephile.
If you’ve ever uttered the phrase ‘Intersubjective’, you’re absolutely a cinephile.
…when you look forward more to seeing Abbas Kiarostami on Netflix than the escort you have arranged a meeting with.
you can tell the difference between “your” and “you’re”
Yea, definitely it’s when you think movies are better than sex.
-When your only way of finding new music is through hearing it on films
-When your at a friend or acquaintances house and at some pint say you going to the loo when you sneak off to inspect there DVD collection.
-When you finish Satantango half starved and sitting in a yellow puddle
When you are seriously considering having Werner Herzog’s name tattooed on your arm and your highlight of the year so far is seeing Jaws in an empty cinema.
When you start thinking that maybe it’s time to take a break from movies.
“If you want to see a movie over three hours long, and it’s any movie other than Godfather or Lord of the Rings, all signs point to you being a cinephile.”
As an usher, I once sat a woman who told me she was seen “Braveheart” for the ninth f***ing time.
Wile I didn’t hate the film, all I could think was “That’s 27 hours she’ll never get back”.
I’m pretty sure she was not a cinephile.

When you relate everything that goes on around to some movie scene and you can repeat word for word or pretty close to it.
