Since 2006, I have been writing reviews and essays about film on Deep Focus Review. Going to the movies, studying film history, and sharing my thoughts about cinema online has always been an integral part of my life and education. Now you can have an active role in Deep Focus Review through Patreon. And best of all, you can commission a review or essay to be featured on the website!
By joining on Patreon, you can help keep DFR ad-free, improve the look and functionality of the site, and gain access to exclusive content. Your contribution also means I can seek out new guest writers for diverse perspectives. Every dollar goes toward improving the content featured on DFR. Also, joining on Patreon is easy and, at the highest tiers, you can help decide what I’ll be writing about!

You and I will communicate in a method convenient for you to choose a film that we both agree is underrated.
