Hi, I’m David, a film lover with a passion for writing, based in London.

After recently graduating from university with a degree in English and Philosophy I decided to create this website as a hub dedicated to all things cinema, applying both my passion for films and writing in one spot. With further growth to this site, eventually we will be able to bring on external writers to join FilmSailor. This can only happen with help from you, the reader, so please share this site and feel free to like and comment, and also follow our Instagram page. I hope you enjoy reading!

A bit more about me

I’d describe myself as a film enthusiast, but when I am not glued to a screen watching movies, I love listening to music and playing guitar for hours. I love rock and metal in particular and always try to go and see live music when I can (or at least when I can afford it). My favourite band is Black Sabbath and I was lucky enough to see their last live show in London! But as for other artists that I love, they would include: Hendrix, Iron Maiden, Metallica, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name a few. When it comes to my personal favourite films I have no particular genre that I favour and I can’t pick any one film that is superior to all, but what I can pick are the ones that have impacted me the most.

In the Mood for Love (2000)

Her (2013)

The Dark Knight (2008)

Spirited Away (2001)

The Godfather (1972)

“Movies touch our hearts and awaken our vision, and change the way we see things. They take us to other places, they open doors and minds. Movies are the memories of our life time, we need to keep them alive.”
