I have been an avid film fan for almost my whole life and I look forward to sharing with you readers my opinions, observations, thoughts and musings on some of my favorite movies and how
they’ve influenced me.
I realize that this will be a highly subjective endeavor and that some people will disagree with my choices, tastes, and preferences. I welcome their comments and am eager to learn from them - but the bottom line is that this is MY column ; they can always write their own!
The movies I select will run the gamut from classic to barely known ; from expensive productions to “shoe-string” efforts ; from films with “sensible”, timely, universal themes to outré and the frankly bizarre.
Many genres will be represented: color, black and white, musicals, westerns, stark dramas, romances, comedies, noirs, horror and sci-fi films, banned and experimental movies, silent, foreign films, historical sagas-you name it! The vast majority, of not all, my choices , will be at least 30 years old, hence the name of the column.
I look forward to sharing with you readers and exchanging ideas.
Your feedback will be greatly appreciated and I hope to discover many films I don’t know of and many other ways of experiencing and considering a movie.
I eagerly anticipate and await this adventure in sharing and expanding myself. Thank you.
