This site is comprised of an awesome, and diverse group of cinephiles. It is its members who make the site great by their contributions and opinions. This is the sole reason I will remain here.
I am a person with many passions, especially anything creative. My love for cinema goes back to my childhood fascination with television shows and old horror films and silent films that I spent many hours studying. My love of the auteur and art house cinema came as a teenager when I first saw Fellini’s Juliet of The Spirits, Antonioni’s Blow Up, and Bergman’s Wild Strawberries. Though I love much of cinema my first love is with the director/writer who is true to his or her unique personal vision of the world. Like all great art, whether it be visual, literal, musical, or as with theatre a convergence of all of these elements there is a spiritual dimension to great cinema. Something that makes us question and wonder and dig beneath the surface of life.
If anyone in the Denver area is interested in forming a film discussion group I would love to talk to you. It is so hard meeting true cinephiles who appreciate the same films I do.*
