I’m a university student who studies politics and international relations. While I do love this pursuit, I’ve always enjoyed story telling whether it comes in the form of radio, the written word, movies, or plays. In order to stimulate my creative side, and love of story-telling, I started this blog to analyze movies new and old. At Salient Cinema I specifically like to discus what makes films good, and what holds them back. With some of the more nuanced and philosophical pieces I will write blog posts, but with the recent blockbusters and more “fun” movies I will do podcasts. I think this marriage of the two forms could be a good way to tackle both reasoned complexity and more lighthearted endeavors at the same time.
