Character and world-building are the most important to me as a writer. Scripts are where my passion lies, though prose-fiction and editorial can also interest me. No matter what I want the reader to feel immersed.
Matt Reeves, The Batman is The Film We Deserve
The Batman (2022) is the latest in the canon of Batman films. Matt Reeves’ interpretation of the character and the myth that surrounds him is, in my opinion, the best ever put into a live-action film. With Robert Pattinson the latest to take up the cowl, Paul Dano as the Riddler and Zoe Kravitz the feline-loving Selina Kyle.
A Long Journey
I’ve always loved train rides, long bus rides where all I have to think about is when I need to get off. My bus to College every day for two years was an hour long. Since moving to London I haven’t had that. Every journey I take is less than forty minutes. Except for the train to my cousins. It takes me from Richmon through the District line, under the river, past South Bank to Cable street. I like watching the stations pass by, the people that come off and on the carriage. It’s easy to fall in love with a stranger on the train. To see a snapshot of their lives, how they carry themselves, the way they wear their clothes. It’s always the guys with fluffy hair and the girls with unique style. Making eye contact with them feels like a triumph, the little flirtation that goes nowhere. Sometimes those are the best kind. The District line has so many stations with stories, personal and historic, all of those transitions. Hellos and Goodbyes forever. One of the stations I pass along the journey, Gloucester Road, has a personal connection to me, not just because of the name being called after somewhere in north Somerset. But Because that’s the last place I saw her.
