Introduction

Hi, I'm Naomi. I love watching movies, and reading/listing to film criticism. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll ever feel like I've seen enough to be more than a enthusiastic beginner.

What is the one film that you regret seeing and why?

Lynch's Dune. It was so grotesque it triggered a kind of anxiety attack. I silently left midway through to bus across town so I could sit on a friend's couch and shake my head no for a few hours. Kyle Mclaughlin, why.

Why do you like watching movies?

I really like talking about stories, and movies give you so much to talk about. They're a more communal experience than reading. Plus Hot Fuzz is a goddamn delight.

Who's your favourite actor or actress?

Joseph Gordon Levitt. Yeah, what.

What's your favourite movie and why?

The Night of the Hunter. Langesque surrealism, twisted fairy tales, unforgettable imagery, good versus evil, misogyny, religion, a pissed off spinster with a shot gun. Robert Mitchum's Harry Powell is the most memorable character in film. It's the most vivid film I've ever scene. Made in 1955, it was rejected by its contemporary critics and audiences. Its director never made another film again. And the movie was perfect.

Who's your favourite director and why?

I don't have one. I usually like to see what Edgar Wright and Lucky McKee are up to. He's as subtle as a brick, but I have a strange place in my heart for Norman Jewison. I'm catching up on Kurasawa right now.
