Ramblings from a wannabe film scholar living in Beirut.

Hello and welcome to Reel Rambler!

Initially named Life As Told By Film (2015-2016), Reel Rambler started out as a side project to share my views on the films I was watching. Coupled with a few courses on Cinema, the blog became an arena for study and observation of cinema and the politics of the film industry.

Taking a break in mid 2016, I decided to reshape the identity of the blog to reflect how seriously I was approaching Cinema, now more as a career rather than a hobby. And so in March of 2017, and officially as Reel Rambler, the website began to come to life.

I am not an expert on film (although I hope to be one day), but I’d like to think that what I have to say carries some relevance.

The website is  going to feature content ranging from reviews to film and casting news. Although I’ll be covering a myriad of genres, I have a particular affinity for things that go boo at night – so expect a lot of (what tries to be) Horror.

As all things, Reel Rambler must also come to end. This has been such a wonderful, rewarding experience — an film education unto itself. I’m so thankful for the thousands of readers who’ve tuned in over the years, the writers who’ve contributed, and interns who’ve passed through.

I started this blog in 2015 with the intention to learn more about movies and force myself to assess them more critically, to become a better movie goer, and I got so much more in return. Words will never be enough.

My love for film isn’t going anywhere. I’ve simply decided to take it with me back to school as I work towards my grad degree and take my first steps towards helping tell the stories that have inspired me over the years. I feel like I arrived at a crossroad between filmmaking and film criticism, and — as much as I love both — had to make a decision to move towards filmmaking/film development.

Rest assured, friends: in one way or another, you’ll hear from me again.

Until such a time,
