Selfie

I’m Jaime Rebanal. I’m here to voice my thoughts on film, ranging from the good to the bad, old to the new, nearby to the faraway, all I’m looking for is a means of sharing my voice. I generally write my reviews over on Letterboxd, and eventually I get them published over here so that I can get myself more widespread. My love of film started with a viewing of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho at the age of eleven and I started getting around to watching more films outside of the English language thanks to Vittorio De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves and Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai. I’m also an autistic and a schizophrenic. I was born on August 20, 1998. I may not be the most compelling individual, but I try.
