Rua Fay

Creator, Writer, Editor In Chief

Hello! My name is Rua Fay, I am from Boston, Massachusetts and I am a huge cinephile. This is my website where I talk about everything concerning my favorite art form: film! Growing up I was not surrounded by a lot of people with similar interests so I figured I would make this website to write about what I love and hopefully connect to others who share the same love for cinema as me! Here I post reviews, analysis essays on my favorite movies and probably a lot more things as this site continues to grow. I completed Boston University's Summer Theater Institute in 2021 and I currently study film at Ithaca College, I'm on track to graduate in 2026. My favorite directors of all time are Stanley Kubrick, Charlie Chaplin, and John Waters. If you've stumbled upon this site, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my website and I hope you find something you like!

Danielle Ahrens



Hi! My name is Danielle Ahrens and I am from Mendham, New Jersey. I am currently a student at Ithaca college, expected to graduate in 2026. I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can remember and film is my favorite art form to express them with. Like most of the writers on this site, film plays a big part in my life and I hope to one day pursue a career within that industry. One thing you should know about me is that I am not a picky eater, but I am a picky film watcher. I like tearing films apart to the bone and bringing out the most “controversial” opinions about them. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them!

Zach Zanatta


Hi! My name is Zach Zanatta and I’m a University student from Toronto. I’ve been watching movies basically my whole life and it doesn’t look like I’ll be stopping anytime soon. I started my cinematic journey with animation and horror, and those two genres haven’t stopped being my favourites since. I’m a big fan of Italian Neorealism, classic slashers, and silent comedies, but I’m always willing to branch out and try something new. Some of my favourite directors are Charlie Chaplin, Federico Fellini, Dario Argento, Ingmar Bergman and Paul Thomas Anderson. Besides movies, I’m into art and music, basically anything that isn’t sports. I have a ton of things I want to say about movies, some good, some bad, most likely all unprofessional, so check my stuff out here if you’d like.
