Welcome to moviediva!
Moviediva provides thoughtful film writing, with reviews containing biographical and production details, critical opinion from old and new sources, photos from out of print sources and a collection of vintage movie-star scrapbooks and the moviediva's own definite point of view.
You can search the Index for reviews of hundreds of great films, and check for recent updates in What's New. Or, if you must know about me, try About moviediva (but remember, it's all about the movies).

"The darkness that settles over a movie theater is equivalent to the act of closing the eyes. Then, on screen, as within the human being, the nocturnal voyage into the unconscious begins." --Luis Bunuel
