Welcome to Cinematic Visions! This blog offers new perspectives on films old and new. Some of my writing is excerpts from papers I write for class, so bear in mind the language of my texts may change from time to time! However, overall I want this blog to have more of a journalistic tone than academic. In Scene Sound Off I breakdown and examine a definitive scene. In Reviews & Analysis, I focus on the theme or a particular aspect of the film in relation to our society and culture. What’s Up With That Ending? discusses confusing or ambiguous movie endings and plot twists, frustrating and fascinating. For lighter fare, the Top 10 section is a fun assortment of opinion-based lists. When it’s time for the Oscars and Golden Globes, take a look at Awards Season.
This blog is written by me, Caroline! I was born in the home state of my hero, Bruce Springsteen. I studied acting at Shenandoah Conservatory and The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I have a Masters degree in Cinema Studies and am currently writing a book on film and Springsteen music!
Like most film enthusiasts, I grew up watching films. My parents let me watch whatever I wanted, so I saw as much as I could at a young age. Some of my favorites are Raging Bull, The Godfather, When Harry Met Sally, and Amadeus. But my absolute favorite will always be The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I don’t discriminate, I love all films from blockbusters to the most obscure of independent features. My favorite TV show is Mad Men, which reflects my fascination with all things from the 60s and 70s.
