I've been a movie lover for as long as I can remember. My father loved movies and he passed his deep affection for them on to me. I grew up on a steady diet of horror cinema, spaghetti westerns, American musicals, espionage adventures and Japanese monster movies that gave me the ability to appreciate films that were often marginalized by other film fans and overlooked by many critics. As I got older my interest in cinema expanded into areas like Italian Neorealism as well as the French, British and Japanese New Wave.

My first film reviews were published in my junior high school newspaper and when I started attending college in the late ’80s I concentrated on film studies. For the last 7 years I’ve been writing about film regularly at Cinebeats.com and I currently write for Turner Classic Movies. Some of my other writing accomplishments include contributing liner notes to the CD release of John Barry’s soundtrack for BOOM! (1968) and providing an overview of Lee Marvin’s performance in POINT BLANK (1967) to the 2008 Woodstock Film Festival guide. I’ve also contributed to various film related magazines and websites including Cineaste, Fandor and Paracinema.

In 2010 I was honored to be nominated for a Rondo Award and in 2012 I was asked to join the Alliance of Women Film Journalists. Besides my blog, you can also find me on Twitter @cinebeats.

“There was a depth to her. On the surface she was a beautiful brunette woman. Beneath that–and you could almost get poetic here looking into her eyes–you could see layer, upon layer, upon layer. I could probably best, and inadequately, describe it as a kind of exotic mystery.” – Roger Corman on Barbara Steele There […]
