I am currently a History student at the University of Cambridge. I like everything really (except musicals!) but my particular interests include animation and south-east Asian films as well as European arthouse cinema. My dirty shame is enjoying Adam Sandler films.
Favourite Directors: The old cliches (Bergman, Fellini, Kurosawa, Kubrick etc) as well as contemporary film makers such as Takeshi Kitano, Fernando Mereilles and the Coen Brothers.
