I’m Georgia, a 21 year old English student, aspiring writer and film/music/art enthusiast, currently studying in Manchester, UK. I also like travelling, film photography, vinyl, food, fashion, and dabble in a bit of filmmaking from time to time.
There are few things that make me happier than watching, discussing and writing about films, so here I am! This blog is a platform for me to share all my film-related opinions and write reviews, in the hope that others can maybe enjoy them as well.
‘Cineguise’ stems from my ideas about cinema as a guise for who we really are. Often when we watch films, we project ourselves onto onscreen characters and scenarios, gravitating towards films we feel we connect with, whose writers and directors understand our own personal plights. I love the idea of cinema acting as an extension of ourselves, or who we’d ideally like to be, allowing us to alter our perspectives on the world, explore new concepts, and undergo self-development. It’s endlessly interesting to see film being used to express the intricacies and nuances of human thought which could never be articulated through language.
