Hello one and all, and welcome to Screen Muse: a place for my film reviews and rambles.
I’m an English graduate from the University of Exeter. In my first year of my degree I wrote my final essays on David Lynch’s Blue Velvet with Lacan’s Pyschoanalysis, and on childhood in The Piano and Pan’s Labyrinth. Through researching and working on these, I began to notice a growing passion for writing on film, which I then pursued in my spare time (through this blog, and a website called letterboxd). I’ve always loved film, and yet discussing visuals alongside words was something that I found particularly fascinating, and it’s safe to say I’ve been obsessed ever since.
This blog is a place to store and work on my opinions on film. It is a space both for me to develop my reviewing skills, and for me to share more informal thoughts on themes etc.
There’s a search bar at the bottom of the site which you can use to find particular reviews, and there’s also a Review Archive for if you’re feeling like browsing through my posts.Follow @CatMayB
