A Cinematic 'See Also'
I’ve long toyed with resurrecting my old blog ‘Abracadabra Dept’ as a newsletter, and the tail end of a weird year is as good a time as any. Besides I deleted all my posts awhile back, much like I destroyed my teen diaries. This will be a fortnightly email from me, your new trusted friend, that will – yes, recommend films etc, but also – connect the dots between what I’m watching to other films, playlists, drinks and so on. I’m often on the road ( mostly hugging onto the tailcoats of my peripatetic partner), so my tips won’t be totally Au-centric. They may be wild though! Let’s just see.
About me: I’m a writer, and film curator (mostly). I’ve been the Director of Programming at Golden Age Cinema in Sydney, Australia since 2013 when we opened, so I spend a gross amount of time sitting in the dark. In a former lifetime I was a designer and, briefly, a DJ (LOL). I’m a houseplant & crystal enthusiast, a Leo with a Gemini Rising & Gemini Moon, and am known to go full Diane Keaton sometimes.
