Jean-Luc Godard said that, “Cinema is the train, it is not the station.” This blog is a place where thoughts and ideas about movies converge, where memories of film intersect with new discoveries… it is our Cinema Station.

The Creators of Cinema Station
I am a film buff and sometimes film scholar. I started watching movies seriously in the Caribbean (St. Thomas, VI) where I grew up in the 1950s. For the past 22 years I had been teaching Film Studies (mostly Foreign and Independent) at Arizona State University where I am now a Professor Emeritus. The composer/musician Duke Ellington once said; “Music is my mistress.” I will alter his statement a little and say: “Cinema is the love of my life.”
I grew up watching the classics of cinema on VHS tapes on a small island off the coast of Africa. Since then I have been obsessed with film, reading about and watching all of its varieties. I write fiction and direct movies, but one of my greatest pleasures in life is the expression of love and passion for my continuous journey through the past and living cinema.
