Occasional academic, harried parent and sleepless zombie, Anton Bitel gets his film thrills from horror, the Asian New (and Old) Wave, 'arthouse', and anything miserable, odd or just plain unpleasant - even if he spends considerable time worrying that cinema may never again meet the high standards set by David Lynch's Eraserhead (1977).
Anton has also written for Sight & Sound, Film4, Little White Lies, Film International, Total Film, MusicOMH, Movie Gazette and Daily Information. He is a member of the Online Film Critics Society.
