END OF PR
Obsessive cinephile (Art films, Avant-garde-underground, 60's-70's European and Asian exploitation).
I had what I laughably refer to as a long "career" as an
un-produced screenwriter. I have written dozens of them over the years, several seemed close to getting financed but they all fell through. It seems possible that the subject matter I focused on, the tendency to court controversy and write lead characters that were outside the parameters of mainstream thrillers, melodramas and horror scripts contributed to my woes.
I am immersed in the arts and literature. Read widely in culture theory, psychology, and philosophy and so on. It can make for a dry profile but great correspondence or conversation if that's the kind of exchange you're looking for.
I have had enough time, enough experience, enough "input" to now see connections, parallels in all manner of supposedly disparate realms of knowledge. I get a kind of intellectual high taking in new ideas, or new works of art.
Open to the unconventional (GGG) but comfortable with the more tried and true as well. I am Reflective, artistic, and iconoclastic. And I am very left-wing/progressive politically.
Frustrated in my life goals thus far but never dissuaded from pursuing them.
I am tall (ish), thin, professorial. I can do everything I did in my thirties – only better, because I know so much more now.
