“Foreign-language/world cinema is an excitingly different flavour to the all too familiar blandness of cookie-cutter Hollywood product. It is no coincidence that Hollywood attempts to adapt so many foreign-language films, because the best of them most often exist outside the big budget bubble, and contain a creative verve that studio execs can only dream of. I find it enlightening and refreshing to gain a different cultural perspective in the films I watch, and while I love the big Hollywood blockbusters as much as the next person (maybe even more than the next person...), cinematic variety outside the norm is very important to me.”

“I am a graduate of Journalism and English from the University of Stirling, with aspirations for a career in journalism and a love for writing (about a variety of topics) and films/filmmaking in general. I currently work in a cinema, and indulge in my love for (almost) all types of movies by maxing out my free ticket allocation on a monthly basis.”
