I've been running this blog for about two and a half years now, and while I do know that I have at least some readers, as evidenced by my Google Analytics stats and the comments on the posts, sometimes it's hard to know if there's anyone really out there. However, incontrovertible proof has come my way via this blog award:
-- bestowed upon me by the estimable Neil Fulwood, author of the very fine read The Agitation of the Mind, which I highly recommend. Thanks, Neil!
So, in that generous spirit, I'll spread the love by passing on this award to some other blogs that are well worth your attention. I won't annotate these other than to give them all very hearty recommendations:
Critic After Dark
Korea Pop Wars
Lessons From the School of Inattention
Observations on film art and Film Art
Beyond the Multiplex (Andrew O'Hehir)
Seen in Jeonju
Shooting Down Pictures
Some Came Running
Thanks for the Use of the Hall
The Criterion Contraption
The Evening Class
Tom Vick: Asian Cinema Plus
Also, a very honorable mention to Catherine Grant's Film Studies For Free, an invaluable resource collecting links to scholarly film writing on the web.
Thanks to all the writers above (and the many more I don't have space to include here) for consistently providing excellent and inspiring writing, and last but most certainly not least, thanks to all my readers from around the world (from 74 countries at last count), for taking the time to visit my site. I hope it is, and continues to be, worth your time.
