Movies and Miscellanea

My eventual hope is to launch a film blog, where reviews will be somewhat more casual in their composition and more swiftly produced than the book counterparts. Broken down, I watch 95% art-house and international, 3% film history (“history” meaning stuff from the silent era to the 70s) and 2% Hollywood (which does on occasion get it right). I have never yet stumbled on a film blog catering to those tastes and so feel compelled to invent one myself.
