I was born in Scotland in 1978, moved to Ireland in 1983, and have been living in Finglas ever since. I attended St. Patrick's College Drumcondra, where I got a BA in English and History, then I went to NUI Maynooth, where I got an MA in English. I'm currently in the final year of my PhD in English. I'm also an amateur filmmaker and have made 7 short movies and 1 music video.
A diatribe about how atrocious cinema has been for the duration of 2008, and an unfavorable comparison with 1999 and 2000, both extremely strong years from an artistic point of view. This deterioration is shown to be directly as a result of a lack of originality in the Hollywood system.
