This blog is merely the contribution of a Film Critic for 20 years and former president of Quebec Film Critics Association. I decided, with help from colleagues, to revisit things as the humble film buff who once was. I would like to draw attention in a comprehensive way to films, either the ones you may have missed out or are already among your beloved ones, rather than going for the usual analysis or critic.
A Film Critic for the last 15+ years, I was also a film programmer for the Fantasia Film Festival a few years back. Huge movie lover and film collector, I enjoy all kinds of pictures, digging a lot for film genres and Asian ones without shying away from Art-House material. I aim to draw your attention to films from all around the world, especially some you may have heard too little about.
