A computer science graduate from the University of Edinburgh. Enjoys reading and writing about film. Recently taken up bicycling, and the gym in a late and vain effort to get fit. As for my taste...I adore Jean Renoir, Akira Kurosawa, David Lean, Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, David Cronenberg, Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese, Charlie Chaplin, and the great Alfred Hitchcock. His Vertigo is the best film ever made, a gift to the medium that reaffirms the art.
