Okay, so this should have been the FIRST post of this blog. But, it's damn near 3am in the morning. Sue me.
This blog will be about all things film: indie, Hollywood, foreign, etc. I love film and I finally get a chance to wax poetic about some of my favorite films, directors, and review current films and comment about films in production, etc.
Of course, I will definitely bring a nice little 'ol intellectually sound perspective to the intersections of race, class, sexuality, and identity and how they are/are not accurately portrayed in films....
Eventually, when I can sum up enough courage, I will even post parts of scripts in progress of my own.
Who am I? Just an Ivy league educated, Black man whose vivid memories are as a six year old, sitting with my Dad, watching ALIEN on HBO, a couple years after it coming out and telling him "I wanna do that". Now, here I am, after several years of starts and aborts, I'm determined to do this and see where it takes me.
I hope you come along for the ride and enjoy what you read and learn along the way.
