About Me

I am a junior at the University of California-Santa Barbara and a double major in Political Science and Film and Media Studies.

One of my all-time favorite films, the grandeur of the Hollywood Cinema of the 50s and 60s is on full display. Lawrence of Arabia is spellbinding; it is a true masterpiece of cinema and artwork.
How can war be so confusing? The Bridge Over the River Kwai is a neat, economic, and powerful portrait of British education, and how it affects one's perceptions of right and wrong.
Cinematographically slick and undeniably powerful, City of God is full of both action and soul, marching to the beat of unrelenting samba music for the entirety of the film.
The rare mosaic-style film that is connected and coherent while still keeping its element of surprise and unpredictability.
A powerful statement on justice and an absolute clinic in cinematographic storytelling.
Bong Jon Hoo's monster movie is somehow both intentional and unpredictable. It is a thrilling ride full of twists and turns, that succeeds in not only providing action and entertainment but having a script and a screenplay that it can be proud of.
An absolutely magical film and a ringing endorsement of optimism and the miracles of life.
Eastwood at his actor-director best, the film is a tribute to his legendary status as a champion of good, even though he may be plagued by many flaws.
Imitation is the purest form of flattery, and all action in films stems from one movie: Seven Samurai.
Humanity is the language of Godard's film about french youth, and the humanity in it reminds us all of our younger selves.
