I write to keep the monsters at bay, to quell the urge to set fires and dig holes to see if what’s buried in my dreams lives down there. At heart I want to tear things apart and shore up the river, build sand castles in rocky earth and throw the biggest rocks I can find at everything and everyone. Some day I want to dispel the ugly truth and prove my silly suspicions – wrong is wrong and right is right and we know the difference no matter how many fires we light. Until then I’ll claw about the shores of indecision and mottle the good drinks, enjoy the seconds because that’s all we really have.
I write because I am hungry and disappointed and excited all the time and sometimes I make a point or lavish mumbling. I make movies, do voodoo with my trusty Rotring fountain pen, put words down and throw them about here, in person, in the soupy mists and at my blog, Above the Line: Practical Movie Reviews. You might find my Dreams & Other Nightmares blog or you might not. I was born out of random happenstance, my blog was born out of absence of the otherwise unavailable focus on meaningful and helpful commentary on films of today, yesterday, and tomorrow. Since 1970 and before.
