In Craig's words: "I'm 39 years old, I live in Los Angeles and I'm a lifetime fan of movies, especially the classics, I started Living in Cinema in April 2007 as an alternative to so many websites that seemed focused on entertainment gossip and the box office horse race. For me it's all about what's on the screen.To that end, Living in Cinema focuses on current reviews, opinion and tidbits of movie news. My goal is to provide a place where thoughtful, friendly people can come and talk about the movies that excite them. Favorite Movies: Dr. Strangelove, The Seven Samurai, Raising Arizona, Rear Window, His Girl Friday, Singin' in the Rain, Once Upon a Time in the West."
