Credits, Bios and Other Ephemera

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Connecticut; I now live in Brooklyn. I spent ten years as a theatrical stage manager and literary manager – two roles that most people have never heard of – but now prefer this side of the biz.  When I’m not blogging here, I’m over on my other blog, Wadswords.

Credits and Thanks

Some reviews mention someone named Alex; this was a roommate, an aspiring screenwriter and another film buff who was not only tolerant of the Crash Course but all-out dug it, to the point that he once paused a Hitchcock film to give me a three-minute dissertation on “How Do You Know Whether Cinematography Is Good”.  He now lives in Los Angeles.

The current roommate, “Roommate Russ,” is similarly cinematically inclined and about 75% of my screenings of anything now come with our post-show discussions.

Thanks to Mr. Carl Caputo for helping me track down some of the harder-to-find films.
