About The Author

The author of every piece on this website, unless otherwise specified, is Ryan Bordow.
(Full disclosure: that includes this third person description. He promises it is factual.)

Ryan Bordow is the film critic for AZ Big Media magazine and its corresponding website, and the founder of Sitting In The Cinema. His primary passions lie in the worlds of film, art, philosophy, and theology. He enjoys delving into these interests through his chief skills of writing, research, analysis, and communication, and consequently he relishes the spaces offered up by the human experience. 

He is currently a recent college graduate floundering through that phase of life, and is attempting to find ways to synthesize his interests and skills into a financially viable future. At the moment, this involves applying to graduate film school, and formulating plans to formally study theology later on. He hopes that some readers of this "about the author" page are here because they are looking to employ a writer of wry words, student of artistic sentiment, or teacher of tenable truths.

When he's not sitting in a cinema or stringing sentences together, he loves to travel the world, read challenging ideas, question authority structures, and date a wonderful woman. He currently resides in the sometimes-great state of Arizona.
