Hiatus Time!

Going on hiatus for awhile – I might be back next Anime season.

Azumanga Daioh Osaka Neko Koneko

I just haven’t had time to devote to make actually good reviews on the site, with all the time devoted to my podcast (Dartboard Cinema), my articles on Geek Juice, and the time needed to look for an actual paying job. So for now I won’t be posting often on this site, at least for the remainder of this anime season. I’ll keep you guys updated once the new one rolls around!

Thanks – Alessandro

Festival Fare With Alessandro – Papusza (2014)

Hey guys, I’ve been picked up by a site called Geek Juice for a film review series. I’ll be looking at films you would find at film festivals. NO that doesn’t mean art house films – though some of them will be peppered in there. Here’s a link to my latest article below. Much more to come!

Papusza Review: http://bit.ly/125TPjb

Something a little different from what I usually watch – a biopic about a Gypsy poetess by directors Joanna Kos-Krauze and Krzysztof Krauze. On Geek Juice.
