"I’m a film critic for my love of film. I want other people to see the same films that I saw and love. From the age of four, I was going to movies all the time. And I think a lot of film critics got caught at an early age with being completely enraptured by this media, especially seeing it on the big screen. I think film bit me in some way, and that’s why I like it." - from BU Today, Nov. 12, 2008
