Welcome to moviediva!

Moviediva provides thoughtful writing about classic film with reviews containing biographical and production details, critical opinion from old and new sources, and the moviediva's own definite point of view.

You can search the Index, What's New or moviediva, jr., for the opinions of a teen diva-in-training. She's in the process of updating some of her older entries. Or, if you must know about me, try About moviediva (but remember, it's all about the movies).

Here is the schedule for the 2004 Winter Film Series at the North Carolina Museum of Art. January will be devoted to foreign language cinema from the glory days of the international art film, February and the first weekend in March will mark the passing of elders Gregory Peck, Katharine Hepburn and Bob Hope and the series concludes with treasures from the Library of Congress, a Bollywood extravaganza and Russian Ark introduced by NCMA Chief Curator, John Coffey.

If you have a question or comment, or wish to be added to the NCMA Film Series e-mail notification list, you may Ask the moviediva. Here is a Movie Quote of the Month archive.


"The darkness that settles over a movie theater is equivalent to the act of closing the eyes. Then, on screen, as within the human being, the nocturnal voyage into the unconscious begins." --Luis Bunuel
