My name is Joey Laura, and I’m addicted to movies. (Hello, Joey…)

I’m 20, and I’m from New Orleans. I’m in college right now and just changed my major from film to English (with a minor in Spanish). I currently write movie reviews for Driftwood, the University of New Orleans newspaper. In the future, I’d love to get my doctorate in English and teach. For right now, before I pursue any kind of dream, I’d like to get my feet wet with a blog to incorporate my tastes in movies, film reviews, essays, rants, and anything else I may feel like including.

My Favorite Movies: 8½, The 400 Blows, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Ace in the Hole, Aguirre: the Wrath of God, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, Annie Hall, Apocalypse Now, Au Hasard Balthazar, Au revoir les enfants, Beauty and the Beast (Cocteau), Belle de Jour, Bicycle Thieves, Bride of Frankenstein, Citizen Kane, A Clockwork Orange, The Conversation, The Devil and Daniel Webster, Eraserhead, F for Fake, A Face in the Crowd, Five Easy Pieces, Grapes of Wrath, Harvey, It’s a Gift, Koko: a Talking Gorilla, The Last Laugh, Last Year at Marienbad, Letter from an Unknown Woman, The Lost Weekend, The Man with the Movie Camera, Modern Times, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Passion of Joan of Arc, Persona, Pinocchio, Sherlock Jr., Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, The Third Man, Ugetsu, Vertigo

My Favorite Music: Animals, Arctic Monkeys, Beatles, Billie Holiday, Captain Beefheart, Leonard Cohen, the Coral, Jim Croce, the Damned, Donovan, Doors, Bob Dylan, Electric Light Orchestra, Jefferson Airplane, Jethro Tull, Elton John, Kinks, Mamas and the Papas, Marilyn Manson, Nirvana, Gilbert O’Sullivan, Peter Paul and Mary, Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lou Reed, Simon and Garfunkel, Frank Sinatra, Cat Stevens, Talking Heads, James Taylor, Tom Waits, White Stripes, Zombies
