As a lover of film, I really appreciate those who not only share my affinity but write about it in a unique and thoughtful way. I don't necessarily seek out film review media, but when I see something good, I'm hooked. This is where A Bright Wall in a Dark Room comes in.
A Bright Wall in a Dark Room is a work of passion not only for the Editor-in-Chief, Chad Perman (a good friend of mine in high school) but of the entire group of writers and contributors who, "...reflect on the movies that mean something to them: what they love, what they hate, what they can't stop thinking about."
One of the reviews in particular really caught my attention. Liz Shannon Miller reviewed Argo last month and instead of just writing the basics about the movie, and the characters and such, she e-mailed her parents asking them to reflect on what they experienced during that time period. It was such an interesting take and made the movie (for me) even more personal as an American.

Chad and the others have put in thousands of hours of their time as well as their own money to keep this labor of love going, but in order to move on to the next step, they are going to need a little support. If you are a lover of the arts or passionate about film, please read more about A Bright Wall in a Dark Room and see how you can help. There is a lot of junk out there, so when good content from good people (Chad is a fantastic person!) comes along, it's worth it to show a little love.
