Upon seeing Last of the Mohicans one fateful summer night many years ago I realized I yearned for movies that above all else moved me and, thus, set forth on an eternal cinematic crusade for, in the words of Werner Herzog, The Ecstatic Truth. The great film editor Dede Allen once called herself a “gut editor – intellect and taste count, but I cut with my feelings.” Borrowing her phrase and tweaking it, I like to think of myself as a gut film reviewer – intellect and taste count, but I review with my feelings.

Favorite Films: Last of the Mohicans, Million Dollar Baby, The Myth of Fingerprints, Before Sunrise/Before Sunset, Atonement, Lost in Translation, Chinatown, Bonnie and Clyde, From Here To Eternity, The Big Sleep, To Have and Have Not, Key Largo, Once Upon a Time in the West
