Rants, raves and ramblings of a cinephile. Consultant by day; full-time film buff by night. Some favourite genres include horror, zombie-horror (yeah!), end-of-world horror (woohoo!), war, crime, psychological thrillers and drama.
This space is a little corner to organize my thoughts, a film journal of sorts. Naturally, I can’t and don’t ruminate on every single film I happen to watch—the ones that don’t inspire afterthoughts and musings are excluded.
As for the term “Cinema Interruptus”, it was originally coined by Howard Higman and further popularized by film critic Roger Ebert. In essence, it describes the process of analysing films on a shot-by-shot basis.
It has been years since film school and looking back, I realize precious moments were lost in the preview theatres. There was luxury of watching uncut versions of great movies from auteurs (on the big screen); and most of all, the presence of lecturers to guide us along in the viewing experience.
I am making up for lost time here.
