Greetings all. In stating the obvious, my name is Octavio, a trying scholar who happens to be pleased to be appart of this online community who shares my passion of cinema. Throughout my life, the cinema has been a place where I could escape my troubles and sorrows. In addition, I've discovered that cinema can delve into any subject imaginable, the trick is to give an audience a licence a sense of verisimilitude. I truly don't believe that cinematic observers can be classified in their array of categories to make themselves feel better about their cinematic experiences. "Like all writers, he measured the achievements of others by what they had accomplished, asking of them that they measure him by what he envisaged or planned. ." - Jorge Luis Borges.
