I’m a playwright ( struggling) and long time film buff. I moved to Boston in 1967 and was able to spend my formative years going to the film rep houses there: Brattle Street, Symphony Cinemas, Harvard Square Cinemas etc. By the time I left to Boston to move to New York to go to college, I felt as if I had seen everything . Now I don’t feel that way. There are great swathes of movies that have fallen by the wayside for me. I used to feel it was important to keep up with what Hollywood was doing as well as the indies and foreign films, but now I find I have little or no patience for them. I hate watching a movie and being able to tell what page of the script we’re on – and sadly that seems to be the case for most studio pictures. There are exceptions to be sure – but basically they ( the studio pics) all look and play like each other. This is a roundabout way of saying: As I get older I am at the same time stuck in my ways and open to new forms – but I avoid the middle of the road.
