Biography:
Ted Prigge was born on March 27, 1979, and has been reviewing movies (off-and-on) for around four years now. Socially inept, he budgets his time around seeing movies, reading books, and going to film school at Temple University, with delusional hopes of one day becoming a filmmaker of sorts. Or at the very least a well-paid Hollywood hack writer. | All-Time Favorites: La Dolce Vita, Some Like It Hot, The Graduate, Brazil, Manhattan, Bringing Up Baby, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Repulsion, Citizen Kane, Annie Hall, 8 1/2, The Third Man, The Cook the Thief his Wife and her Lover, The Empire Strikes Back, and Pierrot le fou
