My father introduced me to good cinema early on in my life. His favorites included: Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Citizen Kane, Charlie Chaplin, Lawrence of Arabia. As is often the case for children, his tastes became my tastes. My tastes evolved over time to include films by David Lynch, the Cohen Brothers and more. Stuff that my dad didn’t like, naturally.
I’ve posted movie reviews on Facebook for years. Since Facebook has decided it prefers to sell advertising rights to the end of civilization, I decided I would try not giving Facebook my content for free. We’ll see how this experiment goes.
