Director of The priestthe screenwriter of Taxi Driver and the brainy critic who posted the transcendental style He usually uses this social network to pour out his opinions on the movies he is watching without any filter (as well as some other related topic, such as when he attacked with the new list of Sight&Sound that erected Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles as best film ever).
