Howdy-hi. I am, to fulfill the critic stereotype, an aspiring writer/screenwriter. My knowledge is fairly extensive (I was weaned on Hitchcock, the Marx Brothers, and Fred Astaire, and have broadened since then), but I’ve my gaps like anybody. General tastes tend toward Classic Hollywood (especially yon stalwarts noir, screwball, and melodrama), but I make attempt at varying what I watch. There will be some projects, as they make me feel less lazy, but a limited amount, as I am lazy.
