Comments– I’ve always wanted to watch this one, but never sat down to do so all the way through. That changed when it happened to come on to TBS (or some similar station) the other day. There really isn’t much to say about this one; it was a straightforward drama that had some excellent acting and an even better story. I like to think that something like this couldn’t happen to people anymore, but that is probably naive of me. It’s a real tear-jerker that I recommend to anyone with a heart. Great.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
