At the age of about 6 my parents got divorced. My mom, being somewhere in her 20’s decided she needed an escape of sorts and so she took me to the drive-in. I remember seeing a lot of movies there in my early age. I remember being a kid and my mom taking me to see “Throw momma from the train” because I was just that kind of kid. And thus began my love of the cinema, something that continues to this day. As I got older I found more and more films that reflected the absurdness by which I viewed life since my sheltered existence was removed at an early age ( 8 1/2, Nowhere, Pink Flamingos) and movies that showed the brutal reality of the society we inhabit (darkest days, Gummo, Suburbia, Mysterious skin yup another Araki movie). And now I try to spread the love of cinema with my nearest and dearest. Some good, some bad, some just playing Nowhere.
