"If there's one thing that makes film a life long passion, it's the constant sense of discovery that comes along with it. For an art form that, relatively, hasn't existed for too long, it's one that constantly and quickly evolves, with easily traceable threads and influences eventually leading to a plethora of under seen gems.
While most contemporary filmmakers will cite their specific film influences for their latest pieces, the discovery doesn't stop there. In fact, the creative process for these films is often so long and so well researched that some almost unconscious cinematic touchstones slip into the alchemy of the movie making process. For some, this has happened so frequently over history that these unsung masterpieces go criminally overlooked."
