About me: I'm currently a film major/english minor about to enter my fourth year at Portland State University (Portland, Oregon, USA) and aspiring independent filmmaker and amateur (but, as my teachers can attest, not amateurish) film critic (inspired heavily by Roger Ebert)...
The above photo is one taken of me with singer/songwriter Kimya Dawson (JUNO) at Music Millennium in Portland, OR March 2008! :)
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED:
You may have noticed I have not been writing full length reviews on Flixster in some time. Gradually, I will be re-posting capsule reviews here. After some consideration, I decided to simply transfer my reviews from Flixster and put all my full-length "official" reviews on my Wordpress blog.
I will be working on my Wordpress blog over time to bring my thoughts on cinema up to date. To read more thorough reviews on my Wordpress blog go to: http://magnolia12883.wordpress.com/
This is all a work in progress. Please be patient.
Also, the good majority of my student film work is available in the blog section on my MySpace filmmaker page:
