About Corinne Rizzo

Corinne Rizzo (1986-Present) is just some batty broad who dropped out of graduate school to pursue poverty level employment and study to become a yoga instructor. When she isn’t fighting a cigarette craving (no smokes in over a year), she can be found doodling with charcoal or modifying some part of herself or her surroundings. As far as film goes, she took a few genre/theme oriented classes as well as a few film survey courses. She loves simple and clean films in the vein of Clint Eastwood, Wes Anderson and Richard Linklater.

About Charles Beall

Charles Beall is an unemployed political scientist currently residing in Upstate (there are more places north of Poughkeepsie, people) New York.  His academic focuses are global and domestic human rights issues, Sino-North Korean relations, Southeast Asian studies, domestic and global political movements…just to name a few.  He also really, really, really loves movies.Although he holds a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Wright State University, Charlie has always loved film.  From an early age, he was captivated by the images flickering from the projector overhead and the rampant rage of imagination that a film unleashes on its audience.  Charlie believes that film is a universal language that everyone can understand; it brings people together, it enlightens us, it holds a mirror to our society whether we want it to or not (at least that is what he believes film should do).Charlie’s film tastes are eclectic; there is no genre that he doesn’t approach with an open eye.  His idol is Steven Spielberg and he has absolutely no apologies for that.  Charlie would eventually like to be a filmmaker/screenwriter and is just waiting for the right opportunity to come knocking.  In his free time away from the retail job that is slowly sucking the soul out of his body, Charlie likes to write, write, and write some more. Note: Charlie does appreciate the effort involved in filmmaking and tries to keep an open mind, however, it must be known that these are three useless clumps of celluloid (films) that he has seen that he has such an utter contempt for that the mere notion of them makes him sick.  They are “Irreversible,” the remake of “Funny Games,” and “The Human Centipede”.  In fact, “The Human Centipede” is the first movie that Charlie never finished out of pure and complete disgust…and he sat through “From Justin to Kelly.”
