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 cinema, philosophy, and theology; he enjoys delving into these interests through his chief skills of writing, analysis, and communication. He quite relishes the creative spaces offered up by the human experience. 

He is currently carving his way through his mid-twenties and attempting to find ways to synthesize his interests and skills into a financially viable future. At the moment, this involves getting his Master of Advanced Study in Film and Media, and formulating plans to pursue higher education 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.
