Discovering coming-of-age films as I came of age myself was what got me hooked on the movies. From there, I’ve become an enthusiast for all different kinds of genres, and I wouldn’t be able to define my film taste if I tried. I am a Film graduate, and an Arts & Lifestyle student, with aspirations to become a film and literary critic in the future. Amongst my favourite films are Paris, Texas and Buffalo ’66, although let’s be honest, that will probably change by tomorrow.
