A moderately insightful critic, full-on Swiftie and all-around bon vivant, Peter Sobczynski, in addition to his work at this site, is also a contributor to The Spool and can be heard weekly discussing new Blu-Ray releases on the Movie Madness podcast on the Now Playing network. He also has his own Substack, Auteurist Class, where he regularly publishes additional reviews.
He saw his first movie (“Dumbo”) at the age of three and hasn’t stopped talking about them since. His favorite film is “Buckaroo Banzai,” his favorite filmmaker is Brian De Palma and his favorite actors are Dick Miller and Nastassja Kinski. Dinesh D’Souza once called him a disgruntled leftist and he seriously considered having that printed on business cards.
