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.

Scores are never permanent.
