Hi, I’m Patrick from Los Angeles. Originally from Ireland. I’m a medical doctor. However, I am also a passionate movie lover and have been as far back as I can remember. Growing up in Ireland, I devoured every movie that would come my way, often over a year after it had opened in the US. During my decade of medical studies in Galway, I managed to get a job writing about movies for “In Dublin“ magazine and later, I started writing articles for “The Irish Times”, which I continued to do after I moved to LA in 1992.
My favorite director is Hitchcock and, fittingly, ”Vertigo” is one of my two all-time favorite movies; the other is Polanski’s ”Chinatown”. I recently started working less hours as a doctor, so I thought that I might try my hand at a Blog.
The blog was born under COVID-19 isolation and has spread it’s wings, I think.
I’m also a proud member of BAFTA
