I am very glad that you found your way to my new blog derfilmsnob.blogspot.com
Here you will find reviews of both classic and new films I see as well as additional comments on the current state of world cinema. Most reviews will be in English but I will occasionally post reviews and articles about local events in my native language German as well because it just feels more natural to me to write about German language films in... well, German. But if you are interested in the reviews of these films and you don't understand the language, you can use Google Translate
It is no coincidence that I am starting this blog today since today is Andre Bazin's birthday. He would have been 93 today. In case you haven't heard about him, he was one of the most influential film critics ever and the father figure of the Nouvelle Vague. His theories are still discussed today and he is also the author of "What is cinema?", one of the most important film books.
In a time when film reception and criticism is getting increasingly shallow, I find it hugely important to stimulate independent thought which is why I would like to dedicate my blog to him - even though he is way out of my league as a critic...
I hope you will enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
If you do (or even if you don't), I cordially invite you to comment on them.
