Michael, 30 from Northern Ireland.
My blog is named after the Kate Bush song of the same name which deals with humanity’s pursuit of knowledge and the unwillingness to devote the effort required to obtain it. My own further interpretation of the song is the belief that obtaining knowledge will make you happy and give you a high, yet this only leads to eventual dissatisfaction as you see it’s just a foothill for a bigger mountain of knowledge behind it, yet we keep doing it again and again.
Beginning at the age of 17, classic Hollywood films have been my all-consuming interest. It’s a lonely pursuit and dare I pull the line, I was born in the wrong generation. With my film reviews, I hope to enlighten and entertain the reader and push them in the direction of a film they might not have previously known about.

Michael, sorry for the late notification, but I nominated you for a Sunshine Blogger award (no pressure).
Hey Michael. I’m just dropping by to invite you to take part in a blogathon I’m co-hosting. Here is the link below.
Thanks for the invitation. However, I’m not a huge Joesph Cotton fan and while I’ve really liked several of his films I wouldn’t have much to say about Cotton himself.
I’ll skip on this one but please keep me informed on future blogathons!
Although a love for the classics, might be a rare pursuit, it’s not a lonely one. I’m not sure about Northern Ireland (though I’ve lived in the UK, I never got to visit any other place, outside England, within Britain), but most of Europe (especially Western Europe and Scandinavia) has more of an open-minded outlook, comparatively. The Australians and Americans tend to be narrower. This is of course concerning the first world nations. When it comes to the third world, it’s very hard to find people who appreciate the cinematic arts; especially in Sri Lanka. It’s THE most aesthetically depressive country, I know of.
