Movie Reviews

My first love is the cinema.

My bachelor's degree is in film studies. I started working in movie theaters at age 16 and have spent many of my adult years working as a projectionist and as a theater manager. I also taught screenwriting for the Chicago Screenwriters Group for several years and worked as a film critic for a Chicago magazine for a while.

Even when I'm not being paid for it, I often write movie reviews for fun. In fact, a friend and I wrote an Oscar-focused website for many years. Here are a few of the movie reviews published there.

To make a great film you need three things – the script, the script and the script.
