about

WPaboutI started this blog more or less just to dip my toe in the blogosphere, although it has taken on a life of its own. The title is not literally true, although I do tend to write about films I have viewed recently. In this sense, it is an extension of a database I keep that tracks my viewing habits.

All of these essays are short, with a self-imposed limit of 500 words. I don’t pretend that they express the definitive opinion of a film, even for myself. Rather, the essays express thoughts resulting from a particular viewing. The basis for those thoughts is broad, although you may detect a prejudice in favor of some directors whose work has influenced my own.

As a filmmaker and a critic, I try to enrich both activities with insights gleaned from the other. Many of my films are online at vimeo, if you want to get a sense of what comes from the cross-pollination. Hopefully you’ll find the hybrid rewarding. I have also started to expand the blog beyond just movie reviews, to include more general (see “Some Thoughts”), old podcasts and more links to some of my films.

And of course, feel free to friend/follow me @ Facebookgoogle+twitter

Thanks for visiting What I Watched Last Night… I hope to hear from you.
