Film List

As a film essayist/writer, I watch a lot of movies. My taste is all over the place and it includes canonical classics, guilty pleasures, as well as, obscure films that few people know. I love comedies, including rom-coms, documentaries, Golden Age of Hollywood films, and I love a good indie, too. This is an ongoing list with films that I’ll add to – some – most – will be reviewed on this site.
