Welcome to 9takes

My blog aims to provide insight on two fronts.

The first is a window to my personal journey through cinema. I believe that the best movie discoveries happen when a flesh-and-bone person, rather than a piece of code in the form of an algorithm, recommend you movies. We don't have to agree on everything, but why not make the most about what we have in common? Let's discover new films together.

And the second is about the craft of film-making. I'm interested in enhancing my appreciation of cinema through reading, watching and analysing movies. Cinema is a rich art, full of tradition and secrets waiting to be discovered. Join me and you'll see what I mean. It's fun! Movies can be much more than just theme park attractions!
