Welcome, readers, to Trash to Tarkovsky, a blog that I’ll be using to channel my creative energies into the two fields I’m most passionate about: writing and film. For me, the power of cinema reaches far beyond the surface of mere enjoyment. Movies can inspire us, shape us, even transform us — and show us a bloody good time while they’re at it.
I’m no expert when it comes to film critique; just another one of those amateurs that fancies themselves as the next Roger Ebert. Still, to anyone that stumbles across this page and takes the time to read my work . . . thank you! And please, feel free to drop a comment.
No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul. — Ingmar Bergman
