I recently proposed to Gil and Sarah that I write a regular “film review” series for Life as a Human, in which I would review movies from the past forty years or so that have moved me for one reason or another but may not have been especially popular or may have been forgotten over the years. They enthusiastically agreed, so here we go.
While I am a devoted cinephile, I am in no way an expert in film-making or in film reviewing. I simply wish to share with readers the joy I have experienced in watching movies—in many cases over and over again—that have spoken deeply and intimately to me. So the reviews I submit will be even more subjective than what one might expect from a “professional” reviewer.
I invite readers to challenge my opinions, offer alternative interpretations, and submit recommendations for films to review. If you have seen a film I review, I hope that what I write will inspire you to remember it fondly, to watch it again, and to perhaps see it from a slightly different angle. If you have not seen it, my wish is that you will be moved to add it to your collection of memorable cinematic experiences.
The first review will be up this week!
