I am a film critic for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and a DVD columnist for the MSN (http://movies.msn.com/new-on-dvd/), and a frequent contributor to MSN Entertainment, Turner Classic Movies Online, Greencine.com, and Asian Cult Cinema. I have written for Amazing Stories and Psychotronic Video, have written hundreds of video reviews for Amazon.com, and I have over 1,000 reviews and essays in the Scarecrow Movie Guide. I live alone with my 2 cats, I love movies by Howard Hawks and Orson Welles, will watch anything with Burt Lancaster or Humphrey Bogart in it, and hope I never have to grow up and get a real job.
And now the important stuff: My favorite director: Howard Hawks My director obsession: Orson Welles My favorite films: choose from The Searchers (John Ford, 1956), Gun Crazy (Joseph H. Lewis, 1949), French Can-Can (Jean Renoir, 1955), Touch of Evil (Orson Wells, 1958), Kings of the Road (Wim Wenders, 1976), Vertigo (Alfred Hitchcock, 1958), and any number of Howard Hawks films – Only Angels Have Wings (1939), Red River (1948), The Thing From Another World (1951), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), Rio Bravo (1959), and the vastly under-appreciated Hatari! (1962) Favorite performer: Burt Lancaster and his million dollar smile.
