David Neil Butterworth was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, England in 1961. He studied Film & Television Production at West Surrey College of Art & Design in Farnham, Surrey, and relocated to the United States in early 1983. David started writing movie reviews in 1988 for the Daily Pennsylvanian, the student newspaper of the University of Pennsylvania. His first review was of Geoffrey Reggio's Powaqqatsi -- he figured it should get a little easier after that! Since then, 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, Broad Street Community Newspapers, and the Las Vegas Weekly among others. 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.
