Writer, cinephile, aspiring polyglot, and amateur wine and cheese connoisseur. I love all kinds of cinema from Criterion arthouse films to trashy exploitation flicks and everything in between. I approach every film with curiosity and intrigue and I’m never short of hot takes. Long live the new flesh.
