I’m a screenwriter, independent filmmaker (director/DOP) and a politics junky.
House of Cards is about the machinations of human greed, lust, amorality and power against a political backdrop with an incredibly proud and thoughtful dedication to good drama and storytelling.
House of Cards is written, performed and filmed extremely well.
Thus, this blog dedicated to House of Cards.
What I don’t do: Traditional reviews and recaps. Plenty of good pro and fan sites for that. Check the Internet.
What I do #1: My written commentary uses the show as a platform to discuss broader socio-political themes, all through the lens of HoC characters and narrative arcs. These include political commentary, social issues, foreign affairs, TV/Film industry, character examinations and interlinking film and human history within the framework of the show’s plot-lines.
What I do #2: Occasionally I’ll be posting video commentaries dedicated to the more technical cinematic qualities of the show: writing, directing, production, lighting & cinematography, etc.
