Aspiring librarian/former screen studies student who dreams of one day dabbling in film programming or archiving film documents or at the very least serving popcorn at an independent theater of some kind! I’m a lifelong pursuer of film to the point where it in large part defines me. I write so I can remember and so I can grow in my efforts to articulate. The online film community is a wondrous place where I hope to interact with many fellow cinephiles!

Idolizes Louise Brooks, Leonard Cohen, Joanna Newsom and Jim Henson. Favorite film is Bringing Up Baby (although in a couple of years I feel Shop Around the Corner could take that coveted spot) but I literally have hundreds and hundreds of favorite films that range from Fat Girl and Dogtooth to The Muppet Christmas Carol and The Emperor’s New Groove. I also write for Verite, CineOutsider, and Criterion Cast.

  1. Hey, I’m Matthew and I run a site on called After The Movie Reviews (­. At the same time, I contribute my work to a site called We Will Rise (, a site where myself and other website owners and artists submit their work to be put up. Anyways, we are looking for more talent on the site and would be interested if you wanted to join up. I think your a really talented reviewer and would make a great addition to the site. Basically the way it would work is, you write a new review, and let We Will Rise host it, while still running your own website. It is a great chance to connect with other reviewers and entertainers, and it would work similar to the site

  2. I finished writing a review for Black Swan moments ago which I just watched tonight and was looking for an image to put in my post and found the perfect one I wanted. In my search, I stumbled on your page and my gosh, I envy your writing. I think it is incredible and you put my little piece to shame. Respond or message me if you have the time. PS, I couldn’t agree more with everything you said about Aronofsky and the entire film. He is one of my favorite filmmakers. I really didn’t do any research (like you must have!), I just kind of spoke from the heart. I have to write something when I feel so passionately. Really enjoyed reading your review!

    1. Wow! Thank you so much for the comment! It really means a lot. I read your reaction to the film and was so impressed. It was really personal and equally insightful about what the film had to say. Believe me, I do not in any way put your “little piece” to shame. It’s really wonderful. Thank you so much for commenting and I’m so glad you enjoyed the film!!

  3. Hello,
    I am the blog administrator for, a site for film lovers that focuses on all eras of cinema. Three times a week, our site features guest posts from film blogs, and I was reading your site and feel that your posts would be a perfect match for MovieFanFare. Please look over the site at your leisure and tell me if this would interest you.). Naturally we would provide a link back to your blog (and, if applicable, your blog’s Facebook page) and provide a short bio if you supply it. The only changes we would make to your content would be adding any links we deem relevant to provide information to our readers (ex – links to our retail website or Wikipedia). Please let me know if you would like to participate, and if so we can arrange something.

  4. Just came across your site, love it.

    Does anyone cover films like the The Joy Luck Club; Water; A Better Life (2011), The Namesake; The Beautiful Country (2004) or Monsoon Wedding? These are gorgeous films about being an immigrant and tell such beautiful stories.

  5. Hey!
