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).

The 2004 Winter Film Series at the North Carolina Museum of Art is over (alas) but the summer films will be here before you know it. The summer film series calendar will be posted on moviediva in mid-May.

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
