David N. Butterworth studied Film & Television Production and History of Art at West Surrey College of Art & Design in Farnham, England before relocating to the United States in 1983. He started writing film reviews in 1988 for the Daily Pennsylvanian, the student-run newspaper of the University of Pennsylvania. His first review was of Godfrey Reggio's visually resplendent yet wordless tone poem, Powaqqatsi -- he figured it should get a little easier after that! Since that time, David created and edited the (now defunct) film review website, "La Movie Boeuf," and served as Film Editor for the currently-on-hiatus OFFOFFOFF.com (an alternative guide to New York arts, entertainment, and culture). He has also worked as a staff writer and film critic for various print and online publications including the Ritz Filmbill, the Las Vegas Weekly, and Broad Street Community Newspapers, for which he wrote a movie review column, "The Moving Pictures," each week for near on a decade. David is an avid contributor to various print/online forums dedicated to the work of the late Oscar®-winning British film composer John Barry (Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Dances with Wolves, and Out of Africa). He lives in Merchantville, New Jersey with his wife Emily Lockwood Corse and has four daughters -- Zoë, Grace, Lilla, and Bailey.more
