A cinephile is a devoted moviegoer and I, ladies and gentlemen, have given my heart to celluloid. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of the written word. In fact a great film, an inspired book and some Gelato - well that's my kind of menage a trois. Truth be told, a great film is usually the result of a story, a dialogue, a funny, dramatic or beautifully written prose and when united with the appropriate direction, production, cinematography and killer soundtrack, an undeniably formidable force.
The best thing about the recent holidays (other than birthday cake for Baby Jesus and learning a couple of chords on the guitar) was having more time to indulge my love affair and much like Depeche Mode circa 1981 - I just could not get enough. Comedy, Drama, Adventure, Animation, Documentary, Foreign...I soaked it up like a Chux Superwipe!
Here’s a snapshot of my cinematic portfolio (in no particular order of preference) during my extended break. I hope you're inspired to get amongst some cinematic pleasure. I certainly don’t expect to be slowing down anytime soon. It's Oscar season after all! Note to self, best stock up on Gelato...
