“When it comes to reviewing films, I like to focus on how it made me feel, rather than the technical aspects as such. I can appreciate good filmmaking but did it make me feel anything? How did I emotionally respond? Am I going to remember it after the credits roll? I also believe a film should be entertaining above anything else." - Alyssa De Leo.
