Like many, my formative, childhood cinema-going adventures were filled with escapist fare like fantasy and sci-fi - I still recall the mind-blowing sensation of watching Star Wars at aged five! My interest and appreciation for cinema grew as I grew, and in later years the discovery of the work of directors like Pedro Almodovar, Spike Lee, Jane Campion, Terrence Davies and Wong Kar Wai as well as countless others from previous and subsequent generations, provided further escapism, though instead of galaxies far, far away, I was transported into the lives of characters in far flung corners of the world. Now, the films I enjoy cover all genres, from lavish, golden-era musicals and film noir to minimalist kitchen sink dramas, documentaries, and everything in between. I think my picks illustrate my eclectic taste - I hope you enjoy them!
