Introductory Post

I have made a blog! I have done so for several reasons, the primary one being that I wanted to create a portfolio for myself – to store and preserve my writing; considering that I plan to pursue (a) graduate degree(s) in Film Studies, and hope to one day be writing or teaching professionally, I think sharing my writing over the internet is a beneficial first step.

Thus far, each post on this site has been published for archival purposes. They are, at once, a reference for myself, as well as a vehicle for onlookers to travel back and discover my earliest documents; therefore, not only do these posts buttress my writing history – and, by extension, my writing ability and development – they provide visitors plenty of material to surf through, even at this early stage.

It goes without saying that this is a film blog – essays, reviews, and lists; however, I may occasionally post on another subject. Regardless, this site is conceived on the basis of aesthetic appreciation, so all posts will deal with the valuing of some sensory-type object of experience, such as music, television, or, quite possibly, liquor (wines, whiskies, and ales).

So, without further ado, welcome to my site – hope you like it!

    Good luck on the grad school application process. That was me about four years ago, so I can sympathize. It looks like you’ve been writing on some pretty good flicks, so I’ll try to pop in and read up when I can.

    Don’t know what got me here but your blog is quite fantastic. Your writing is very honest and straightforward. I enjoyed the essay comparing the two films on Devdas and you provide cogent reasons for drawing your conclusions in several other essays. All the best with your course and your writings ahead!
