About the Site

As a dedicated and enthusiastic fan of film from past and present, I have often wondered what goes into writing a professional film review.

One day, as I was reading a review for a film that I truly enjoyed, I realized that a lot of professional film reviews focus more on the technical aspects and official film industry jargon, rather than whether or not an audience would enjoy the film.

So that is where the idea for "Behind the Screen" was born. I decided I wanted to write film reviews that focused more on the audience and the love for motion pictures, thus creating the site you are on.

So if you enjoy film old and new, then this is the review website for you.

No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.

– Ingmar Bergman
