Reversing The Gaze: so called because, while I’m a filmmaker first and foremost, I also like to write about films and converse with their makers. I write about cinema because a.) I enjoy it and b.) it increases my understanding of the medium, which in turn is an aid to my own sense of the craft. I hope this insight extends to you, the reader, and that you enjoy reading my thoughts, however ridiculous you think they may be.
You’ll find that most of my reviews concern smaller fare – art house, foreign and/or independent films – the type that usually needs more of a boost. That’s not to say I won’t write about a good Hollywood film now and then, but generally my focus ranges on films that are slightly (refreshingly) off the beaten path.
