A self-employed writer, film historian, lifelong cinephile and happily married father of six, Steve is resolved to acquire and watch all films in the Criterion Collection, which would push his ever-expanding film library well above 4,000 titles — a mere fraction of the actual number of films he has seen in a four-decade love affair with the cinema.
In the last 20 years he has written and published more than 3,500 in-depth film reviews, essays and feature articles on film for scores of print and online publications.
He is especially interested in films noir, German Expressionism, screwball comedies, virtually all French cinema, and the guilty pleasures of expensive American blockbusters. Steve struggles with a dangerous and evidently incurable addiction to exploitation cinema, so-called Psychotronic films and B-movies, particularly low-budget science fiction flicks from the 1950s.
Steve has written two books on film: “Reel Rebellion: A Century of Satire in the Cinema” and the forthcoming “World Cinema: The 100 Greatest Foreign Films” (2012).
He can also connect himself to Citizen Kane in three steps.
