Lover of hipster movies, murder documentaries and great fiction, I’m what you’d call a crazy cat-lady. I love books as much as movies or maybe more: I cry and laugh and live through each page with excitement and trepidation, and, when I turn the last page, it kind of feels like I’m saying goodbye to a friend. I get extremely disappointed if a great book is turned into a bad movie or if the ending of a TV series is not up to the whole show (hello, Game of Thrones?); I think Lost In Translation is “poetry translated into film-making”, and, if you don’t like Bill Murray, you don’t have a soul.
