I mostly write about the history of cinema. I do have a secret passion for old school anime too, but I try to hide it from the community.

The most accurate portrayal of loneliness and isolation in film
It is difficult to narrow it down to one, but Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation feels like an extremely accurate exploration into the themes of loneliness, reticence and human detachment. Other contenders would be Buffalo ’66, Detachment and Close-Up, all favourite films of mine, too.
Also, a film I recently saw, the Danish film Blind. About a woman who has recently lost her sight and retreats into the safety of her home and imagination. The film is more about loneliness and writing than blindness which is superbly realised by the director.
