I remember being about nine-years-old, and my dad rented a movie that I saw TV ads for a few months earlier. Judging from the promos, I thought it was going to be the gnarliest monster movie ever.

Lately, the best aspect about being a movie fan for me is throwing myself into a film I have zero knowledge of. A lot of what’s pushed at the multiplexes rely so much on name recognition, it’s becoming difficult to be surprised by a movie. That’s why, when it comes to an original film, especially one in the indie circles, I prefer to go into it knowing nothing about it. I avoid trailers, synopsis, etc. It’s truly reinvigorated that sensation of discovering movies, and the latest case for me is THE TRANSFIGURATION.
