I am a film buff and visual arts enthusiast, with varying interest in music, cooking and travel. Some of my favorite filmmakers are Akira Kurosawa, Robert Bresson, Carl Theodore Dreyer, Jacque Tati, Krystof Kieslowski, David Lean, Hirokazu Kore-eda, John Landis, Stanley Kubrick, Yasujiro Ozu, Martin Scorsese… etc. I have lived in Asia and Europe and enjoy travel. I am working on a novel and a couple of screenplays and looking for collaborators.
I have loved cinema since I could remember and Criterion is the best thing that’s happened to cinema-philes ever. I hope in the future they are a little more bold with their releases. I’d like to see releases of some works by people like Yu Hyun-mok, Hong Sang-Soo from Korea and Juzo Itami, Yoji Yamada from Japan… and more Blu-ray please!!! I’m dying for a Blu-ray release of Lawrence of Arabia, Three Colors Trilogy and the Decalogue!
