Some people assume that film critics always wanted to be filmmakers when they were young. Creating art, instead of commenting on it. To be honest...
I didn’t have Spielberg in my heart.
I didn’t have Kubrick in my brain
I didn’t have Bay in my cock.
I’m a writer. One who just happens to love movies and a steady paycheck. That makes my most desirable career film criticism.
It doesn’t matter if journalism accepts my style or if the audience accepts my ideas. I write about these things because I feel the need to. It’s not a passion or a calling. Not a drug or escape. It’s food and if I don’t feed I’d starve.
Like any other 19 year old, I’m hungry.
