I have always loved movies. As a child, I was taken to see my father’s favourities: Charlie Chaplin and Jerry Lewis. While that was fun, my tastes at that age ran more towards musicals ( Mary Poppins) fantasy ( Bedknobs and Broomsticks) and character driven comedy ( Father Goose with Cary Grant ). I have never missed the Academy Awards. Watching a movie means getting lost in another world and living through the characters on the screen. It can also be excellent cheap therapy–when you find yourself crying in the dark. Catharsis anyone? Film reviews, recommendations and best of lists can be found here. Maybe I will see you in line at film festival. Thanks for stopping by.
