Book Review: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I read Gone Girl in a matter of days. I’m a fast reader, generally, but this was a nearly 500 page book and I didn’t have a lot of time for it. But the book kept me turning page after page. It’s starts out as a mystery and becomes something of a suspense. The crime … Continue reading

Flash Fiction/Prose Poetry: Smile

I realized this morning that I haven’t posted in weeks! I’ve been busy with film shoots and randoms, so it just kind of ran away from me. This is a fiction/poetry hybrid I wrote a while back. I remembered having written it after my shoot last weekend, which deals with similar themes. Hope you like! … Continue reading

Velvet Goldmine, or the End of Glam Rock

I’m surprised I’ve never seen this film before last night. Given the A List cast and the themes, I’m shocked I never stumbled upon it before this. But Velvet Goldmine is now Watch Instantly on Netflix, so that is exactly what I did. I had no idea what to expect, really. But a ridiculously young … Continue reading

In Which There Are Many Questions

I just watched Julie and Julia, with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. I have to say, I was very impressed and so happy that a film like that, a film that was probably deemed without a market at first, was able to get the green light. Even more impressive is the fact that the same … Continue reading

In Which I Learn About Directing

It’s strange to think that only a few weeks ago I was writing about Thanksgiving and now Christmas is around the corner. I’m not going to talk about Christmas.Β  Christmas is being talked about by far too many people right now anyway. But I feel, because of the holiday and the new year, this strange … Continue reading
